    Sick Moose-gctid399881

    The horn on my 2355 sounds like a sick moose with laryngitis.It looks like the fabric behind the grill has been compromised. The horn body access is through the chain locker. Wondering if the horn is one piece or if the failed part can be changed....Will be pulling it this week.....Mike

    The drop-in horns are crap. Once they get a little moisture in them, the insides corrode and the thin metal diaphragm that's supposed to make the horn tone, doesn't. Sometimes a good dose of WD40 and a few whacks with a mallet will free it up.

    I'm not sure what that material they put behind the grill is, but it lasts 1-2 seasons if you're lucky. I've replaced mine with Tyvek with some success, but it still needs to be replaced when it shows signs of wear. And even if everything is working perfectly, those drop-ins aren't that loud.

    The only solution if you want to be heard is to install a "real" horn somewhere. Realize that even if you buy a top-of-the-line horn, the guts are subject to corrosion. You want to mount it pointing down so that water can drain out. Good ones have an adjustment screw to loosen the diaphragm, or even the ability to take it apart and clean it. An air horn would be a good solution too, but even those can corrode, at least the cheaper ones.
