It's a goofy little "Frenchie" throwback accessory that nobody seems to use anymore.

They still come standard on the Classic and Futura though!

On monday when I went scuba diving, anchored up, flag up, missus on boat and down I go, to about 10 metres depth. After about 15 minutes, I could hear the drone of an engine, and actually thought to myself, that sounds quite large and very close. When I resurfaced, my missus was furious, as one of the local pleasure ferrys/ sight seeing boats had come past, within about 6 metres of our boat............!
And these are meant to have professional skippers...!
