Also fitted is dual hand/foot throttle so I can lock in a speed with the hand throttle while I cruise out of the harbour!! A revelation!!

Ah, friendly banter I love a bit of that, and using the word f**kwit is an excellent way to get started, game on Tony.

May I now take this opportunity to send a link to the original thread entitled 'hand and foot throttles' not 'twin engine control foot throttles'!!

Although I appreciate the originator has a twin engine boat, that was not the question.

Perhaps you were sewing something into your shorts while reading the thread?

This was meant to be a thread to celebrate the fact that an old beauty has been given a new lease of life and to promote the excellent work Rich has done.

He's been through the whole boat and engine and done a fantastic job, I'd highly recommend him. Took it out the other day and had a fantastic run.

The twin foot throttle is great as it will allow me to upgrade it to twin 300's next season!!!

Works a dream tho as is for a single engine, very responsive.

Cheers
