Default Re: wingless' Kahlenberg 115 and 117 Air Whistles

Here are images showing my Kahlenberg 117 whistle mounted on the arch of my 2000 Searay 380 Sundancer.

The location was selected to be close to the open array pedestal because the factory makes that location a flat rectangle for mounting the radar. The rest of the arch is a curved surface and I wanted the whistle to be straight vertical.

Hats off to you Wingless. Must admit it's been a pleasure seeing someone take such pride in their install. Very nice. Lovely boat too!.. wish I had one

Thanks very much for the nice words.

The boat has been very consuming of both time and money. This is just the latest project. One prior big project was me creating my new custom enclosure, where I taught myself to sew, designed the enclosure, created the patterns, then made the enclosure.

The base of the whistle has a ½" NPT female thread and no other mounting points.

The cavity below the whistle does not have much top-to-bottom room, so I drilled a clearance hole for the ½" pipe nipple, wrapped the nipple w/ a cut tire inner tube and used a hose clamp to expand the rubber, clamping the whistle to the fiberglass.

The whistle is very secure, w/o any movement or wobble.

Here is an A/V clip of the completed Kahlenberg 117 air horn installation.

This was running at about 90 PSI and was making about 95dB at 1 meter.

The PB extortion images and clips were all replaced w/ Flickr. This was as much fun as it appears.
