sailing Naragansett Bay, RI since 1999. Started out on a 1987 Catalina 27, have moved up (way up) to a 1996 Catalina 380.

noise control for the water pump?

Replaced the Shurflo 2.8 GPM water pump that was starting to lose the prime with a 3.0 GPM unit.  Both units were noisy as the prime was reached and water was pushed.  The unit itself is very quiet when first started after a period of time, but once water is being pushed through it is loud enough to wake up the whole boat.  Anyone have any good methods to reduce the noise levels?  It is mounted directly on the back wall of the cabinet under the galley sink.
