I use ears, hands and feet....even though I have Glendinning rpm syncro, I tend to not use it.
As an aside, I also have Glendinning CableMaster on port side for two 50 amp cables. The stupid part is I had the boat docked for over a year on the starboard side to T head float and ran the cables all the way around from port across the forward deck thru bulwark hawse pipe to dock power.
Worked fine but in that time the cables went from looking like new to looking terrible (bright shiny yellow to flat slightly faded yellow, plus black marks everywhere)... and tended to catch dirt underneath on the boat deck as well.
Only recently discovered I had brand new set of regular 50 amp cables (plus Y connector in case of marina where only one 50 amp available*) in the storage inventory that I should have used instead via the standard fittings on port side of boat.
Of course if we had
used those separate cables they would have looked bad eventually as well but at least those could be replaced at way less cost than the much longer Glendinning cables, and the forward deck would have stayed cleaner.
*In the hottest of the summer, with most hvac running and if cooking or other high amp use, we actually need nearly 100 amps however..... so the Y connector would only be a "better than nothing" compromise if traveling in summer in the south.
