Default Any loud horns available???

I have my 47 fountain that is a big and tough looking boat but after I "toot" the horn I feel like a little girl! Additionally it seems no one really hears the stupid little thing anyhow. I do alot of river traveling and I use the horn quite a bit with the PWC's and others.

Is there anything out there besides mounting air horns on the deck to make this sound a little more like a train coming down the tracks?

Find out what Formula uses in the newer Fastech. I was on a friends a couple weeks ago and the horn was awesome! It sounded like the loud air can type for sporting events or blow boat use.

My formula has an air horn under the gunnel by the vents in the back. It could use a second horn with a deeper tone along with it, but it blows away the crappy little flush mounted ones.

Kallanberg(sp) yacht horns out of Jersey make all the nice looking horns sitting on top of most yachts. I have a set under the dually and they REALLY get peoples attention. They are usually at the Miami Boat Show.

Train horn with a electric compressor and a tank. That will get attention and they are pretty easy to take out of the triple configuration they are in and make a custom mount. I have a set tucked under the hood of my suburban. If I can fit a set under there, you can fit a set on that big damn beak boat.

I believe that the Pentagon is parting out the USS Missouri to cover budget shortfalls. You could give them a call.
