57-037 BIANCA DI NAVARRA

Dear all, I need to replace the fog horn on the main mast.

Does anybody have a suggestion where to find a new or working similar piece?

Thanks a lot

Camillo

I dismantled it and find out that it is a pneumatic horn. It works with compressed air and after 40 years is perfetly working!!!!!

I will clean and re-chrome the body and relace it on the mast.

Thank you and see in Marciana for sure

Hi Camillo,

that's great news - I wish we had foghorn like this and in this position on Kairos.

As I always say, new is not necessarily better ...

In fact, at least in my experience and certainly relating to S&S Swans, old seems to be (almost) always better.

All the best and Fair Winds
