  • Clock For the Console?

    Has anyone found a decent clock that can be mounted to the dash?

    I don't like to wear a watch.

    I know, I know, you're not supposed to care what time it is when your fishing.

    I use my GPS clock. It is in the display that I use the most.

      I bought a small digital, battary power clock from Radio Shack. It has two settings. One tells the time and the other tells the outside air temp.

        I just finished watching Horatio Hornblower on DVD. Have decided to buy a sextant and install a bell on my Mako! []

        Be good...

          I think I like the idea of knowing the air temp. That's probably what I'll do.

          I don't understand why someone doesn't sell a clock that fits into a gauge hole.

            I think VDO instruments does.

              Thanks Walt,

              I looked at all of the other gauge manufacturers and forgot to look at VDO.

              I figured somebody had to make them.

                A while back I solved that problem by using a cheep timex that I took the wrist band off of and put it under the plexaglass that covers my gages on my '73 22. The first one lasted (and kept good time) for 3 new england summers and winters. When it finally stopped I bought a new one and did the same thing over again.

                  I've seen a clock/tide clock advertised in the back of SWS or Sportfishing mags...fits a standard small guage hole. Having the tide would be nice.

                    I did finally find some dash mounted clocks. Unfortunately they are all around $100.00. I am now leaning towards something that I can just stick to the dash.

                    I don't get SWS so I haven't seen that one, does anyone know the cost?

                      $10 Casio wristwatch with the band removed and a DOT of velcro on the back. Replace in 3yrs.[]

                        With that high tech self designed console and all of those nice brand new gauges and controls and you want to just velcro a p.o.s watch to the dash. Just Kidding[] I wish I had the ability to build that.

                        I would of thought you would have some sort of special atomic clock that is updated with radio frequency like you see.[8D]
