Default Throttle arm

I've seen on other boats with twin engines one handle for rough throttling. I have really nice billett throttles but in rough water I tend to hit the trim switch in the handle and its tough to hold on to the handles when your chopping the stix. Is there a company that sells an attachment to run both throttles from one handle?????????

I agree but didn't see it on the website. I will tell you I've got a whole new appreciation for racers. 30 minutes of rough throtteling and my arm was sore for a week.

If you ever watch John tomlinson throttle, he likes to hold the sticks below the knobs when running. check the teaguecustommarine.com catalog
