This one really rocks, but pricey.

Check out the Bluetooth Antigravity Thump Box . It turns whatever hollow box you have into a speaker . Some areas sound really good as long as there is nothing on the surface to rattle . I can turn the old fish hold on William into a speaker that sounds good . It sounds good on top of the dash or even a big cooler . We move it around on the boat to find the best sound .

That's cool.

Or you could mount these on all your pilot house Windows and have surround sound! I actually have a couple of these exciters and they are fun to play with on different surfaces.

Hey, that's a great idea for a Sonic Bottom Anti-Fouling setup, Marty. Just point the thing down into the fish hold, slip in a Lawrence Welk CD and voila, even the barnacles will run.

We rented a house across the mountains over Memorial Day (out of town family, total of 12 people) and it came with a bluetooth disco ball speaker: ION Audio House Party Portable Sound System



We were there less than 15 minutes before one of the teenagers figured it out, and then it was on for 4 days with only a pause when everyone went to bed.

Pilothouse? I think it belongs on the boat deck. At night in a quiet anchorage. Par-tay!!

Re: iPod, use one of the fm transmitters that plug into the cigarette lighter and then you can pick up the signal on any of your fm radios aboard... most all blue tooth are mono, not stereo so be sure to check!

Re: Puget Sound sailors... Most of the areas 'real' sailors have 'woodies' and can't get a rail under in anything less than 25 gusting 30, so yes, they are out there!

Re: pucker power is a 30 ft sloop with a spinnaker up at 25 gusting 30... more "fun" I have never had! and watching the spreaders hit the water is a 'religious' experience believe me!

20 kt South wind against a 3 knot current. Short period wind waves to 3 feet. Not bad at all. Of course I am heading South.
