Reducing Mag Drive Vibration Noise

Anyone got any suggestions on reducing the vibration noise in my in sump mag drive (ie: Rubber or something?)?

I cut a piece of blue filter foam and set it underneath it, it reduced the vibration.

Is extruded foam safe in saltwater for extended periods?

You could get an iwaki and sell your mag on ebay.

I'm selling my wife's Grand Prix and buying a used Lexus for the same reasons. LOL

Mag12s and larger come with a vibration pad, which ironically in very similar to and adhesive mousepad. Also is it mounte with rigid pipe (i.e PVC) using flex with a little slack usually helps.
