With a paper trail I would think you're fine to swap gauges. If I were buying and I saw the paperwork and old tach I wouldn't suspect anything funny. Extremely nice boat.

I'm kind of the thinking keep it as original as possible. As you said, a limited edition boat that's as much factory as possible would be what "I" as a buyer would like to see. Kind of like restoring an old vette or something in those lines.

Doesn't the engine's ECU also keep track of the hours as well?
