I know the new boats have horns in the console.  It seems it would be rather easy to mount a new horn in the console, provided space allows.  Horns usually come with a trim plate and access to the switch is right there.  But there is always that drilling into the fiberglass concern. I guess if a can of air works, why bother.

Ours is in the console and still works after 11 years.

At least your thought was better than mine. I saw the title and thought..... well, lets just say my mind was elsewhere. :unsure:

Nice work! BTW, did you pack up and leave Michigan to go boating? Seems like summer has done given up the ghost here.

That is good news on the fall forecast! Hopefully it stays true and we can get some extended boating in. Since our water level doesn't drop this fall I'm only limited by how cold I want to get removing the lift and dock.
