A fog bell is used to signal a vessel's presence to nearby craft when poor weather greatly reduces visibility.Applications
These bells lend an aesthetic, old-fashioned aspect to a vessel in this era of ubiquitous electronics. Their presence on recreational craft is primarily decorative. They can still be found on some merchant vessels, though an electric or compressed air foghorn is usually used in thick fog. Even when so equipped, such ships sometimes use a bell to signal watch changes and meals.Technologies
Bells are usually made of brass, with a short lanyard suspended from the internal clapper. Some are engraved with the vessel's name.
- Traditional look
- No power consumption
