What is this hailing speaker for?

Postby Seif911 » June 21st, 2013, 9:04 am

Good Morning All,
So I wanted to scare the kids in front of the boat and found that the thing I thought was a horn is a hailing speaker. What is this the purpose for this?

I now have to reconnect the thing I thought was a broken radio!
Thanks,
Steve

It's a bullhorn for a boat :) I don't recommend using it to communicate with other nearby boaters or dock hands :D

Depending on your radio, it may also be a fog horn.

I think I remember seeing something about a horn selection. Maybe it is a multiuse? I can't wait to hook it back into the power again.
Thanks,
Steve
