Pontoon boat sundeck as a noise shield over the outboard engine. Answered

I have an older pontoon boat and there is nothing to defuse sound from the engine. I have seen them for sale but of coarse prohibitive in cost. It would have to be as light as possible.(don't want to add much weight). It would need access from the boat to the motor. If there was ever a problem with the engine ( It would be difficult to work from the water I'm very short). If anyone has any thoughts I would be very happy to hear suggestions.

Thanks mpilchfamily,

Great idea of using the foam. I know have to find a way for supports plus a removable section to get to the engine. Hopefully when it warms up I'll have to plan framing.

Build a cover with thin plywood. Glue egg crate foam on the bottom of it to dampen noise and your all set.
