    This may be a silly question, but can you not use a dipstick? If it needs to be flexible, a length of curtain wire can be good.

    Nothing works on an old boat, except the skipper.

    Thanks but the tank is in the starboard bow section and not easy to get to. It has an sensor on it but it doesn't work I just need to know how the sensor works so perhaps I can repair it.

    Sorry, but I can't help then. However, good luck with it.

    Howard,

    the normal ones are magnetic floats which close Reed relays within the shaft with different resistors in the loop. Probable cause of failure is that the float has become filled with water. Tie some foam around the float with a cable tie to do a temporary fix.
