Are your tanks top or bottom feed?
Also the "stick" method doesn't require a solid object. On several USCG cutters I deployed on...they "stabbed" the tanks with a windup measuring tape and a plum bob on the end. Still not always convenient but thinking out of the box for some.
Perfect! You took the words right out of my...well fingers
Done and used both, and both are simple, easy, and effective!
We used the sight gauges on the airboats. Work perfectly. (Just saw your response. Disregard the sight gauge idea.)
