    My biggest concern about the device is that some asshole is gonna run their boat into it. I've worked out at sea, on a seismic survey vessel that ran predetermined and highly broadcasted routes. I was shocked by the amount of near missed we had with fishing boats. More than once they'd ignore our hails and either cut in front of our boat within 100ft, or try and rush behind us after we pass and almost get their nets entangled in our sound guns.

    There's gonna be someone out there who's gonna ignore the signaling device and run right into the thing.
