Sound insulation

22 April 2014

The reasoning is that it might dampen autopilot noise and what ever other noises that would come from the steering. Thrown in there is the generator engine panel and tank tender, they are both mounted right next to where you get into the engine room. The main engine panel will be in the pilot house with alarms sent into the cockpit.
