From driving my share of diesels, having a water temp and EGT guage can be good. Both measure parts of the overall equation of what will or will not harm an engine. Sometimes the water starts to go sooner than the exhaust, but usually I found the exhaust to go quicker towards the too hot end of things before the water was even close to hitting something to be worried about. Especially if you are pushing limits.

On the other hand, not sure if on my boat it would be worth the effort as it is in the trucks I use for work.
