Engine Hour Meter Recomendations

Have a sailboat with Perkins Sabre Diesel Engine.
Seems that the Tachometer is still functional but the hour meter within has died. Any recommendations for a stand alone hour meter I should install ?
Have heard that Hobbs made great products years ago, what about now ?

Re: Engine Hour Meter Recomendations

I had the same problem with my Westerbeke. I installed the rectangular version of these:

It makes an audible 'click' every six seconds which is kind of annoying but otherwise works fine.

Used similar for both engine and bilge pump. Mounted at nav station, don't worry about salt water exposure (hopefully). Very happy with results and makes it easy to annotate the log.
