Incontrol is what you need, they do a split pedal, and a link for a hand throttle.

The original manufacturer retired earlier this year, but the design was taken by someone else, who should have the new models out in a week or so. I'm just waiting for the email from them to confirm.

A very good question and something I would love to incorporate also if possible.

Handy for when you're chugging around the harbour at 8 knots!!

Look forward to hearing more.

It's also a feature we plan to have on ours as soon as I get around to working something out for it!

The In Control one is also a lovely piece of kit!

This is definately a must have for us when we rebuild the 28 this winter.

Larby, interested to see your finished design and some prices.

Will do

I'm looking to do it without having a flexible cable like In Control use.

Dual control throttle is fairly pointless on a race type boat to me, though we could accomodate that easily enough too. Essentially the pedal would be split in two so that when using one foot you activate both together and with two feet you could use them individually... At the same time as patting your head and rubbing your stomach!

Cheers, James

James

That's just a standard single one, the dual has a split pedal and works much like I mentioned above IIRC...

James

Edit: Just realised that's not what you meant! I was talking about twin engine setups, you're talking about hand/foot controls.

I'll let myself out....
