What do you ever use the horn for?  You have a draw bridge where you boat?

Train horn would still be fun and because sometimes they cant hear my finger!

One of the guys on the tige page was adding a compresor tank for inflatables and was planning on adding a train horn as well. Not sure how well a small tank will work for inflatables but should be great for a horn. 
 

For taking up less space there are a few options I’ve seen on Amazon thar are pretty compact and could easily be put in the drivers side front compartment.

The horn and finger work in unison on my boat.  I am out early and usually only a couple boats on the lake and several times some idiot manages to cut right in front of and across our line. They get the horn and finger and usually some choice words when I am driving.  Some people don’t know boating etiquette.

the hand held can air horn works fine and is very loud snd will work multiple times before replacement, guessing 10-20 of those will be cheaper than one installation of big horn and air container , small enough to fit in the storage space under throttle , it is our go to for draw bridges around here when they are napping

I would like people who have air horns in their cars (actually it is always in a bro-dozer truck) to go straight to hell.  Can’t imagine how obnoxious it would be in a boat. 

let try this again.....

Nice blanket statement.  Guess you live in a place where everyone drives like saints and don't deal with jack wagons.  While i can admit that many people with air horns are douche bags, but some of us are trying to keep ourselves out of jail for doing something that might be considered irrational. 

I drive a 2017 F150 4 door 4x4.  Not exactly an inconspicuous vehicle.  DAILY i have people cut me off, pull out in front of me, decide 2 seconds ago that they need to turn (never mind I'm literally right next to them).  The air horn was the best mod i've made to my truck.  If you cant drive like a respectable/responsible member of society, you are gonna get an ear full.  Perhaps it will snap you (jack wagon driver in general...not YOU specifically) out of whatever self centered/distracted world you are living in.  Its alot better than getting violent.

Ive had more than 1 situation where other boaters have done some ignorant stuff.  The horn is USELESS!  After the first incident,  i started transferring my personal protective device from the truck to the boat.  Every time!  Threaten me/my family and its gonna be a bad day.

eBay score from a few years ago. 1969ish four note set of horns from an Eldorado or something large.  I’m still looking for a 1966 Cadillac fleetwood set with the stock trumpets. Modern stock horns are lame.

Would it run off the stock horn circuit on new boats?

I have the four Cadillac horns and the two stock Ford horns on on original circuit. Seems like the boat would be fine but the bigger problem is where to place the horns. They are directional so forward facing horns are not useful to stop idiots from running over your rider.

Like this idiot following me, Never knew he was there till boat crew started going off.image.thumb.png.0776bd8e19de08f59aa700e9e80c6ec5.png

I really think our venders are missing the "boat" on this horn opportunity.  Someone need to come up with a LOUD tower mounted horn.

awesome, but the non recharge is smaller and will conveniently fit in that side compartment for an easy reach for circumstances in this post
