Land & Sea did one not a bad unit but if you are doing a dual set up you need to use there cable between Hand & foot.

Just have various lengths of stick that depress the the foot throttle a set amount you can use it to dip ya fuel tank too
All joking aside to get the best from the set up you want them seperate, if you want to cruise then a different boat more designed for mid speed pottering. But thats not what ya want coz ya got a Phantom with a 225

I've got the 'In Control' unit on mine. Excellent bit of kit.
Tony Davis may be able to help here!

Always fought choppers were the fastest prop to run with maybe a 26pitch on your boat? I know there a handful tho really have get use to them,
Sterling does some real comfy seats i have 2 of his and i belive burty has 2. But i expect any seat will do after its trimmed right, ask gav 2 forget suspension seats unless u have big money spend.

It's a footrest/locker (one on each side), which as Matt says, contains some highly important provisions for long range boating
