My 13 OBV is tough to drive at night. Does anyone else find that the gauge lights glare right off the windshield. I was thinking about just unhooking the lights or setting up a switch or dimmer. I think I would only unplug the tach and speedo. I have yet to check the wire situation on whAt would be the easiest fix. Am I the only one who is annoyed by this?

Yes, you are the only person I've ever read post about this.
Turn a negative into a positive and tell all your buds it's the very expensive optional heads up display.

You can replace the bulbs with different ones. Maybe an amber or green would give off less light and reduce the glare you are getting.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

Red would be the best as it does not effect your night vision. I just had blue underwater lights installed but still going to use red in mine. The green ones in mine do the same and make it hard to see through the windshield. I usually find myself standing up and taking bugs in the face LOL...2003 Moomba Outback with 197 hrs on the 310HP Indmar. Its in Cherry condition also and now we will again start to use the boat after a few years off.
