72 Gulf Star no fuel gauge??

Just acquired a golf star and it has no fuel gauge. How do you know how much fuel you have in the tanks? Heard they're supposed to be a measuring stick but can't find it and don't know where to look. Thanks in advance!

check the top of the tank. Alot of older boats have sight gauges that work magnetically with the tank float.
Other wise-fill the tank, measure with a stick, run it for 10 hrs and measure again and so-on

No gauges on my 79 MT either. I just use the dipstick. Marked incrementally at 20 gallon marks.
