600-ft. Depth Gauge?
« on: July 27, 2009, 10:27:32 AM »
The face only has numbers on it.  The seller thinks it's a pressure gauge....

What say you?  It would be nice to have at least one original gauge back on our boat... even if it's missing a dial.

Will try to photo the proper gages... until then, pass on this eBay crap. They wouldn't know a sub depth gage if it bit them in their ass... and if they did, we counldn't afford it!

An ignorant seller is our best friend.  They mis-spell or mis-label the auction and we get it for a steal.
