Perhaps I should move the whole thing aft and assessable directly at the (smaller) aft hatch where I can see what I'm doing.
The valve has 4 positions at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o'clock (full 360 degrees) and there are solid detents at each position. The valve also has a long stem and can be mounted so that the handle is actually in an adjacent space, stateroom, through the pilothouse floor etc. That way, the handle can be readily accessible to select tanks or shut off the fuel in an emergency without having to enter the engine room.
