Rather envious to see you have three warning lights on your "dashboard" to my one.

Well the small tach has done its job in prop sizing plus just one more trip and it's measured the running in revs/hours.

Despite it being "waterproof" I noticed a hint of mist on the inside of the screen last trip out so its been dried and will now live a more sheltered life under the hood.

Annoyingly after just one run out under the hood as in post #25 above the backplate of this tach broke. It was OK under the hood but exposed to water it would be full up and trashed by now. So I'll re-seal it and make up a bracket that will fully support the whole back.

I bought one of the cheap HK ones (about 6? delivered) and before using it for the first time this weekend sealed it in a heat sealed poly bag with gaffer tape around the lead to keep all water out. Survived OK but these things don't seem to read right? The set up menu S1/2/3 etc does not seem to have a 2 cylinder, 2 stroke option and although it reads OK at
idle etc at WOT it seems to read half the revs...no way we were doing 17kts at 2750rpm....I wish!

Waterproof good... odd readings not. I thought it was impossible for the readings to be other than linear... out at WOT = out at idle and vice versa surely??
