Decided to down size since I am changing careers and need a sled with cheaper operating expenses. Found her on BD.

Details,
2013 Dusky 17 with a 115 yamaha on the back. Boat is rigged perfectly. Was considering getting a new boat but I decided getting this one would save me the hassle of rigging a new boat.

Gonna try and fish her Friday.

    Nice rig, congratulations! Looks leaner than your last rig.

    Congrats! I looked at that boat but decided to buy a different one. It seemed well taken care of and definitely built for fishing.

    Yep. That's why I got her. Wanted something that was fuel efficient but still heavier than a bayrunner. Plus side is that the boat will get up and go with the 115 on the back.

    After fishing her yesterday I think this boat is actually a better fishing platform for me since I go solo often. My old Glastron was great but everything on the Dusky is within arms reach. Except for the bait tank it's up front... oh well!

    Nice! Do you know if the steering wheel is original? Been looking for one like that.

    Been done had Catalina twice so far plus a ton of local trips. Made it to China point and back on less than 20 gallons with a passenger and gear/bait. Loving the fuel economy now I just need to get my timing right and catch something other than baby yellows and bass.
