    Re: My horn is broke

    I'm definately going to check the switch. Still don't know why they thought a screeching cat (my horn) could be heard on the water over the sound of a boat at WOT. Espcially when you really need to get someones attention fast.

    Re: My horn is broke

    I thought I read where somone just replaced the horn with an automotive horn. What I remember is that it was the same size and was a quick change. I should add this to my spring list of things to do.

    Wesley's right. I went out and bought a hand held air horn http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs...0&classNum=154 before finally getting a real horn because I was so embarrased by the stock Sea Ray horn. I'm not saying you need a air horn but if you need to replace it then get something that actually sounds like a horn and not a wounded Duck.

    Re: My horn is broke

    Guys,

    I'm serious....if you want to get someone's attention, and get respect....AIR HORNS! I have heard some of the horns on a few of the 300 series Sea Rays in our marina and I thought they were broken. An electric door buzzer sounds better.

    And the best part is if you are anchored out or overnighting at a marina and the neighbors carry the noisy party past a time that is courteous, you quietly start your boat and stealthily drift to within about 2 feet of their boat and hit your Queen Mary-sized air horns and you WILL get their attention. Be sure you know CPR as you may have to render aid.

    Re: My horn is broke

    My horn stopped working right after I bought my boat......apparently that thin paper film doesnt stand up to a pressure washer very well!

    Quick trip to Sea Ray, along with a "Not sure why, it just stopped!" explanation got it fixed.

    I dont pressure wash it anymore......

    MY HORN SUCKS.

    I need to find a better option. when I take people out on the boat and have to hit the horn... they laugh. We've talked about this before, but I can't take it anymore.

    Re: My horn is broke

    My horn stopped working today!

    Boat is less than 2 months old, done only 13 hours. The horn was sounding sick last time I took the boat out & finally stopped today when I gave it a test in the middle of nowhere. The bow nav lights don't work either so I'm guessing water/corrosion has got into them and/or the wiring connections. Fuses are fine. Haven't used a pressure sprayer but have probably sprayed the horn & lights with the garden hose as I washed the boat down. They should be able to take that, definate warranty items I'd say.

    Last time we were out I noticed the seal under the rubber bump strip that runs around the whole boat had separated slightly between the top deck and hull at the bow just under the horn and nav lights so i'm guessing moisture got in through there. Only visible by getting right under the bow and looking vertical. I noticed the slight gap while swimming around the boat .

    Going to get all 3 issues looked at with the 20 hour service.

    Re: My horn is broke

    If you still need a replacement horn I found this and posted it on another thread. I think it's the same one SR uses for their smaller boats and express cruisers (but alot less money). It's waterproof and looks like it attaches to standard size railings. http://www.tiptoeturtle.com/Dimensio...2&zmac=139&zma
