Dear Dr. Sound,

I am looking at your ER-1000 WR Personal PA System Megaphone. It has an output of 6 W (rated) and 10 W (max) when 6 AA batteries (9 V DC) are used.  3 W (rated) and 4 W (max) when 4 AA batteries(*2) (6 V DC) are used.     
Does that give enough sound to be heard clearly from the front of a Dragon Boat to the back, a distance of 47 feet?
Is the unit water proof/resistant sufficiently to use on a Dragon Boat which is used in a salt water setting?

Thank you.

Dear Sandy, 

Thank you for contacting TOA.

The ER-1000 has a audible range of approximately 80m when 6 batteries are used and 40m when 4 batteries are used. 
As for being water proof/resistant, unfortunately it is not and proper precautions should be taken to not expose the unit to those elements.
