EO32 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.

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...

Air Horns

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.
