That will make a big difference.

You can also silence the intake air more and add sound barrier material in the engine compartment.
If there are any openings from the engine area to the passenger area you will get noise through those, even if they are small.

engine noise or exhaust noise?

We have the same boat, and we have not had a problem with any noise exhaust or engine. You could use an automotive foil backed insulation on the inside of the engine cover. But I still find your complaint odd, we really don't have any issues with our engines noise.

Engine noise on a direct drive is a lot more than a V drive seeing as you 8" away from the source of the noise.

Get some decent insulation under the cover.
