Looks like you have both throttles together and both shifters together. ( assuming the red handles are throttles ) Did it come that way? I am use to shifter and throttle for each engine being together. i.e. The left and right gas in the center, and left shifter on the far left and right shifter on the far right of the quadrant.

Actually, that's a superior way to arrange the throttles and shifters. Less chance of making a mistake that way, and it makes syncing the engines easier.

That's what I wondered. Sounds like the factory changed how they installed them on the newer vessels. As long as you have red for the throttles it is understood what they do. Mine were four black handles so I have red tape color coding the throttles and a big L and R under them. Sometimes the driver still will move the wrong one.

Do you have Morse controls? They look different than mine.

I see you are using the same fuse holders I have. May I suggest that if you have room, that you install an extra one and label it "spare". It sure is nice to have one holding a spare 20 amp fuse right at your finger tips when you need it, or a spare cap if one is bad or gets dropped. Plus it is there if you add something later and need another circuit.
