Knock Off 37VT66's New Hailer (Tuggers Vol. 64)

Knock Off 37VT66's pilothouse has a new loud hailer mounted on a custom, American cherry standoff.  The standoff lowers the cabintop-mounted radio for easy access.  The standoff's wood coloration goes well with the laban headliner and matches exactly the existing VHF radio mount.  John Niccolls reports that:

The outside PA speaker somehow also feeds voice from the foredeck back to the built-in speaker in the wheelhouse unit.  No more screaming "neutral" while raising the anchor--a whisper should do it.  The signal functions include a siren!  Cannot wait to use that while apprehending a speeding cigarette boat."
