    Default Well, yes....

    I would say yes, sure without even seeing them. BUT, that is providing they are 12 volt, will mount where you want them, and come with gauge sending units to match..... Style, color, shape, (round, square, triangular, or ????) will of course dictate the mounting in your dash/gauge panel, it just depends on how much custom work you want to do to install gauges that may, or may not, fit in the existing holes... If the temp gauges are mechanical, be sure the capillary, (thermo gas) tube is long enough to reach.... If they're electric that's not an issue....
    FYI, I run electric gauges on the dash, and mechanical gauges close to the engine, visible from the driver's seat, just to verify what the electric gauges are showing....

    The only other issue I could foresee would be the vibration factor. Boats are known to shake the hell out of things, and some gauge brands may be better in those conditions than others....

    ive looked all over and i cant really find out if they come with the sending units or not. soo you might want to call and see. if it doesnt you'll need the corresponding sending unit for the water temp, oil pressure, and speedo. also the fuel gauge is 240-33 ohm so make sure that matches up with your existing fuel level senders. everything else should be fine, and i dunno what the dude above was going off about but these ARE marine gauges.

    i have these in my boat if you're looking directly for white face gauges. and cpperformance is a great company to buy from. support the local forums!

    Going off about?? Most of what I said would relate to just about any brand of gauges. Marine or not, if they don't match his existing holes he may have to do a little work to use them, as well as getting the correct sending units, as you mentioned... Going off? Really?.... AND, some "marine" gauges are meant to be used in much larger, smoother running type boats. Most "marine" gauge units are the same as automotive except for brass components. A definite requirement when used in a saltwater environment...

    The only problem I have run into with the less expensive sets are the Tach's with only a 6000 RPM range! You may or may not have a problem with this! Most gauges should run in the mid of the numbers not maxed out all the time!
