Replacement Stainless Horn Jul 12, 2020

Each spring as we take our boats out of hibernation, we discover something that has mysteriously stopped working over the winter.  Stainless Steel Mini Horns from Schmitt & Ongaro Marine are the perfect solution for small boats where space is at a premium. Ideal for refit and OEM, six 12V models are available that top or flush mount, or install unobtrusively out of the way.
While the Coast Guard doesn’t have a minimum decibel rating for sound-producing devices on vessels under 39.4’, Schmitt & Ongaro’s Mini Horns conform to ABYC A-23 standards. They offer sufficient volume for signaling over distance and have a clear, pleasing tone. Recordings of the single and twin Mini Horns are at
