Thanks a lot for the suggestions guys! I really appreciate it. I ordered those 2 from Aliexpress so will see how those work out. The bilge alarm detector may work also if I recessed it into the furrow deep enough to get enough depth to trigger it.
I agree it would be great if we could connect with professionals (those that charge a fee) on this forum. Free help is great but paying someone and being able to talk on the phone has a value as well. I wasn’t getting anywhere on here a couple days ago so I found out about Upworks. I did a search on there and found lots of people that fit the bill so went that route.
At any rate, the more gateways the merrier…right?
