Air Horns
 
1 Attachment(s)
Being on Lake Union, I have to go under two bridges to go out to the Puget Sound or go to Lake Washington, and you need a horn for them to open the bridge.

I hate those hand held air horns and really like the sound of my new horns.

I ran a 50 foot 1/4" air tube down my mast to the small 12volt compressor that came with the horns. They have a real sweet note.

Couldn't you get them in chrome at least...instead of that tacky red plastic. :)

Chrome would certainly look nicer . . . but if you really want to get noticed how about a set of ship's horns? :D

Keeping pair of vintage bronze horns polished would assure your bosun's chair gets plenty of use . . .

Hey TB, can I get those that play a tune? Maybe like Gilligan's Island? That way when I sail to Portugal...

30 feet up the mast you don't even notice them.

The Chrome ones are way to big, the halyards get caught up in them.
