    I got mine from Modtronic instruments - mod-tronic dot com
    Attached is the link to the Simpson Meter page.
    The meters I purchased were part # TV2RVV150.
    These were the closest I could find.
    I still had to use a little file around the edges to make them fit.
    $ 130.00 ea. in 2018

    Edit : Nevermind, mine are analogue.
    I'll leave the post for older boats.

    On the back of the meters you may find the part number. At least the mfg name. Google all you can find on it.
    I fixed a Hatteras panel that way.

    Paneltronics & BleuSeas use red displays these days.

    Try the Mod-tronics home page.
    Search digital meters.
    looks like they have quite a selection.

    Can you get a better and close picture. Maybe the dimensions. I have some old catalogs in my data server.
    I'll have to plug the old beast back in. Raid 5 and still running XP. Has great games on it also so plugging the beast back in could be fun.

    The image from Hoyt meter is the exact same dimensions that I need but they don’t have a compatible application

    Chances are pretty good that you won't find an exact retrofit to size spec, but making a slight modification is easier than replacing the whole panel...

    I find it hard to believe considering how many posts there are out there and I cannot find a direct replacement for this
    I can only imagine how many boats they’ve built to have this panel

    Well, you could call them and ask them if they can give you background on the panel manufacturer?

    But the technology of those gauges was on the old side in 1998. Lots has happened in this spectrum of technology in those 20 years...

    My boat was refitted with 'modern" Crompton meters in the mid 90's, Housing a set of 8 of these meters, one of them was broken during work aboard and had to be replaced. My outcome was 8 new meters. Went from analogue to digital. That's where the technology was. Fortunately I was able to use the same sensors for the instruments and merely had to replace the meters themselves...you might be as lucky.

    The same display Hatteras uses. I'll try to do some digging tonight.
