Thanks for posting the Murphy link Carl

Also I'd like to have a rudder indicator too.

*We have a wireless weather station at home (no wind info, though).* The batteries in the remote sensor outside last a long time.* But no matter how long they last, I always get annoyed when I have to get out a ladder and climb up and change them even if it's been a couple of years since I last did it.* Since running a cable would be so easy in the situation on our boat, I would prefer a unit powered by the boat.

*We just picked up this one at COSTCO.*

Although it is not easy to install Murphy also has an oil level monitor.

Even if the pressure is still fine , when the amount of oil in the pan goes below a set level, the alarm tells all.

RE: How many guages do you have

EGT alarm will alert you to cooling system failure before the water temp goes up. I have a sensor mounted on outside of exhaust elbow (no drill required) I think 180F makes the switch and alarm goes off. $25 from Pat's Marine engines in Seattle. They call it a Norm switch after Norm Dibble, local Lehman guru. It straps on *where the temp is pretty low. If the raw water flow stops, it gets hot.[img]download.spark?ID=1065429&aBID=115492[/img]
