If that proves to be the case (and I'm sure it is) I am assuming to connect the 2, I would need a NMEA 2000 wiring and t's (a starter kit?), plus an interface of some kind to connect the merc fourstroke to the wiring.

Any thoughts.

Nice gauges but a shame you dont have the smartcraft ones ... I am definitely not smart enough to know anything about NMEA 2000 but many on here are. Hope you sort it

Jeff

OK, I took the boat out this week and found that it tops out at a shade over 5,000 rpms. It doesn't have any NMEA network at all...so I guess I will have to start from scratch.

I have all the bits & bobs lying around to build a starter NMEA 2000 network, if you can wait a couple of weeks, I can get it all together & give you a price.

That sounds like a plan.
