I purchased the Dusky in 2003 with older black max motors. Re-powered with the optimax in 2006. Got a great deal on the motors with warranty till 2010. I decided to change out the aft gas tank to a 140 gallon and installed a 70 gallon forward so we had better range for the islands. The mechanic who mounted the motors recommended I rewire the birds nest in the console. Dave from D&D Marine did a hell of a job. The motors are mounted on the old dusky drive bracket. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.
