I've been wanting to change out the horn for something a bit more robust but for the life of me I can't find where the existing horn is located. Any direction is appreciated.

Mine is under the brow just above the center windshield. There is a cutaway you will see and it should be recessed.

It's located as Bay described. You'll see a plastic cover with a few small holes. The horn is electric and looks like something you'd see on a 1959 Ford. Not kidding. :)

My 3788 has a similar horn. I disconnected it and installed a pair of air horns on the flybridge, The compressor fits nicely under the dash area. The horns are much louder than the original one and work well.

My original is loud and sounds like a car horn. It seems robust enough. I went through 3 trumpet horns on a previous boat of the same age.

That's the horn? I've stared at it for five years. I thought it was the speaker and mic for loudspeaker. Wow I feel embarrass. Thanks guys.
