Extreme 21 foot throttle?

Thanks both. Carl I would need to cut away half of the footrest by the looks of things to allow for a foot well to accommodate the pedal. I don't think the hand throttle is best suited IMO especially since we like to go out in all weather conditions and Saturday was quite rough seas. Was there an option to have a foot pod or is it okay just to cut out the cockpit liner - I can't remember if this would expose the cabin or not?!!

I think your right - reluctant to start hacking away without being sure. She's running very nicely BTW seeing speeds of 51 at around 4200 with some calibration of the throttle cable needed (control box has recently been changed) and it wasn't exactly perfect water at the weekend. Would be a nice upgrade to install a pedal

Hi Brett

Mine has got a hole through the cabin bulkhead , the throttle pedal sits in the middle of the bulkhead.

Hi mate, currently turning a 3 blade 21p Merc Prop (Mirage Plus?). A bit of slip from standing and obviously hole shot no good but seems to perform reasonably well at the upper revs range. We were 3 up 2 lumps on board as previously mentioned Throttle cable/controller may need looking at as ran out of travel at around 4300rpm trimmed out

Hi, thanks for the reply. I am hoping that I can remove the angled foot rest without the need to cut through the bulkhead and build in a LH footrest with pedal adjacent - as per Carl's pic. Pretty sure the footrest is hollow

foot rest is defo hollow - can see from pics in build thread. Question is whether there is enough room behind without having to cut bulkhead. If space is same as on 24, based on Pics of Carls 24, should be fine... Anyone got a foot throttle they wanna sell
