I don't see the point of having a temp switch on one engine exhaust and expecting it to tell you something about the other. If your port engine overheats and you shut it down why do you think that temperature sensor is going to tell you anything about the other engine? If the raw water pump fails on the starboard engine why do you think the sensor on the port engine is going to tell you anything?

And long before this switch thing does you any good at all your fuel transfer pump setup is going to get you fined off the face of the earth when you forget it is running and dump fuel over the side. All the little red lights in the world won't save you from that scenario.
