Foolproof fuel fill, NMEA 2000 or not

Offshore Systems Fuel FillerOffshore Systems was showing this nifty fuel gauge at METS, and it was getting serious attention from show walkers. Developer Bruce Coward told me that last year he had to spend half his time explaining what NMEA 2000 is, but this year most folks seemed to understand it already. Progress! In fact, Offshore makes both an N2K networkable version and one that can just extend the tank info from an existing analog gauge. But going 2000 means you’d have tank info anywhere you wanted it, plus you could use Coward’s water-sensing and no-moving-parts tank sensors. I’m afraid this gear is pricey, however, and I can’t seem to find online dealers for it.
