      You are probably dealing with a natural resident frequency of the boat hull that is sincronous with the vibrating frequency of the sander (So the boat is acting like a bell). Just try to put a couple of weight fore and aft or one in the middle and that may take care of the problem. Otherwise may be a temporary diagonal brace between the sheers may alter the resident frequency of the hull away fron the frequency of the sander.

      I'm doing some repairs on my Windsprint, and when I use the random
      orbital sander to fair the epoxy/fiberglass the whole boat resonates
      with a very loud, unpleasant hum. The neighbors finally complained
      today. I don't really blame them.

      I can't move it indoors, as I don't have a garage or shed big enough.

      Does anyone have any ideas for sound suppression?
