[OMC-Boats] Horn and blower

Hello gang. So I'm beginning the task of cleaning up my 67 Surfer a
bit and making it ready for the water. Today I noticed something odd
with my horn. When you hit the button, you can hear an air compressor
fire, then a few seconds later you'll get a short blast. Or not.
Depends on how it feels I guess. I haven't started really looking, but
the compressor sounds like it's in the bow somewhere. How do I access
it? And how should it function? Should there be a lag while the
compressor builds up air, or should it be pretty instant? I've never
worked with an air horn before. I'm thinking of replacing it with an
electric one.

And while I have your attention, I have a white hose laying in my
engine compartment on the left side. It's just laying in there, with
one end open and the other leading up and out the transom. I assume
it's the blower? Is that how it's supposed to be routed? You can see
the hose in question here:
