I've been trying to decide where to mount the hailer. I had wanted to

I don't want to have my tape-drive jib swinging past a 9"+ protrusion on a
regular basis, even if there is a guard.

So, I was thinking of mounting the hailer just above the jib box. I have a
7/8 rig. A person who used to commission Freedoms commented that he was
afriad that this was too high. I would have thought that the higher, the
better as the sound would carry further. Any thoughts?


=======================

What about hanging it under a mast spreader or mounted on the forward
tip of the bow pulpit?

I don't have spreaders. I have a carbon fiber mast. The bow pulpit was
suggested by someone else, but I'm just worried about having it washed away
in big seas. On a fairly regular basis the bow gets buried.

Have you considered mounting the speaker on the KISS pole or the radar pole?

Just goes to show how mileage varies!

The cable on my Standard Horizon remote mic also fell apart due to UV
exposure.

I e-mailed SH tech support and they dispatched a new remote mic to me,
across to the W side of the Pacific, for free!

It might pay to wipe down all plastic with a UV protectant such as armor
all.

The radar arch is a possibility, but the major reason for having this is
for a fog horn and having the hailer right above my head seems very noisy.
Everything on a boat is a compromise though...
