Audible Alert System Test a Success!

Published by under Shilshole Prepares

Thanks fellow Shilshole boaters!!

We had over 20 vessels participate in the first Audible Alert test held this past Saturday at noon.  Over 20 boats successfully heard one or more horns during the test, with over 10 boats sounding their horns.  This is a great baseline test to see where we go from here.  To help gather more data on the test, we have designed a simple and anonymous survey that we would like all boaters to complete, even if they did not participate in the test. The survey can be found here.
