Default Lokar dipstick ?

Going to be purchasing a Lokar oil dipstick. Does anyone know if the standard big block application works well in a boat? Since it was designed for a car I am worried about any clearance issues with exhaust or anything else I should be aware of. Thanks.

Which one are you buying (and how much)? I might be able to get you a better deal on it...

Just ordered it before I logged on here. ED5003. I think it was $51. I will need another one for the other motor. What price can you do? What other parts do you deal with? I will need more stuff yet.

Lokar is about 1/2 mile from my house. My wife used to work there. A good friend of hers still works there.

I want to make sure the first one fits OK with the exhaust before I order another one. With my luck the length will place smack where the exhaust wants to be. They seem to have some nice products. I'll get in touch when it's time for another one. Thanks for the offer.
