if you have the combo gauge (analog rpm along the top and perfect pass digital pro on the bottom) it's probably fixable.

beyond that i can't help.

I would look at the grounds first thing. After that check all plugs. I am not familiar with your boat but some of your descriptions sound like Grounding issues.

Yup, what Sixball said, check all grounds, and try wiggling/cleaning/reconnecting the large multi-conductor plug near the engine...

Phataz, I believe the rev counter triggers off a timing sensor on the exposed crank shaft pulley. At least as far as I recall. That sensor head needs to be clean and maintain a certain gap distance off the pulley for it work properly. Check that. If that all looks good then run a continuity test on the wiring to the gauge unit so you're sure there's continuity in the line from sensor to the gauge. Also, check that there's proper voltage and power to the gauge. If that all looks good then you probably have a problem with the gauge itself.

Nice dealers there. That seems to be increasingly standard practice with brand dealers - "if you didn't buy the boat from me then I'm going to be a petty little b!^@& and treat you like crap." Great. Personally, I go to the OEM for most parts for my Malibu as it's often a lot cheaper and easier than working with the dealer. That's just my personal experience, actual results may vary.

If you have issues sorting it give us a bell down in Mango as I do alot of work on US based Mals, BTW is it a Merc or Indmar engine and carb or fuel injected?

Search for the thread called "2003 LXi Tach w/PP analog part died but PP works fine" and go to post 21. I would post the link directly but copy/paste isn't working on my tablet at the moment.
