Default Offshore Throttles

Are they really that complicated that you need this much direction to operate? Found on ebay.

Jeez! Really? What the heck?

I'm hoping that's a rental boat, because if you need this kind of reminder he shouldn't be anywhere near the helm of a boat.

Oh, and in case anyone was wondering, if you want to "back up," you should put it in "R."
That's some good advice right there.
