I have a 1966 22' Cavalier Dory. Boat was sold with 4 gauges but I think the original had two. A tachometer and a combination; oil, amp. temp. I don't want to crowd the console dash and am looking for the two (2) gauges. Any ideas? stefan

I'm not sure if the Westach gauges are suitable for the marine environment but they would certainly have a gauge that you're looking for.

Might not hurt to ask them if they've ever been used in a boat instead of a plane.

I'm sure there are others out there that make marine specific gauges, I just can't think of any right now on the ferry.

Any pics of your Dory? (the Dory is the one boat I would really like to own over any other).

Stefan, if you're wanting original instruments for your '66 Dory you may need to go to Kocian Instruments www.ccgauges.com or Clawson Classic Instruments www.markclawson.com to find the correct style for the period.

It seem there are always instruments on eBay but without experience it's difficult to know which are correct for boat you have. These pros can help.
