To be fair not all tach/hour meters are shite.
For a ‘few dollars more’ something like the Trailtech TTO’s are both waterproof,reliable and easy to read.
Fitted these to most of my portable outboards and proved really useful especially during break in period. Not had one fail yet.
Even run the hour meter only version under the hood on my Mariner 60 to keep track of actual run time.
