On ebay this week, there is a very cool boat two way radio, 6 volts and all. Now, you may be thinking, thats cool, but what in the hell would I do with that thing. I have this thing called a smart phone. Ya.. ya gotta think outta the box with this idea. Or maybe I should change that to, think inside the box.
Okay. now if you own a smaller boat, this story may not be for you, or maybe it inspires an idea for you. Either way the concept is the same.
First you buy this thing, HERE ON EBAY or something vintage like it that’s size appropriate for your boat. GUT IT! Yup. Chuck all the useless crap inside.
The concept here is to use the shell. And then. this is the easy part. Insert a Jam Box, Blue tooth compatible. That’s it. It’s basically a shell for a modern speaker. This way you retain the vintage look, but the sound, the music comes from new technology.
Your phone is the broadcaster of course. See? just cause its old doesn’t mean its useless. At least that’s what I keep telling my wife and kids.
OR, take it to the next level and put a Black Velvet version in your boat house. People will think you hired an interior decorator.
