Marine fuel sender?

I have an autometer arm and float style fuel level sender in my tank and am unhappy with the amount the needle moves due to fuel slosh. Has anyone had experience with marine style fuel level senders? My thinking is that boats see much more fuel slosh and bouncing and maybe the marine style sender will do a better job than the float and arm style.

something like this:

or this one (at the top):

Anyone have experience with marine fuel senders either in your boat or installed in your camaro and can shed some light? Thanks

Re: Marine fuel sender?

We use the same sender for marine and automotive applications. The sender will always move as fast as the fuel sloshes around. A dampened gauge will help. Most OE fuel gauges will be dampened with fluid inside the movement itself. Over time this evaporates or weeps out resulting in a non dampened state.
