How do you control engine throttle and gear
On my boat, the engine throttle and gear selector are located near the floor of the cockpit. When docking I need to adjust throttle and shift gear a lot. When I do this I have no visibility as I need to lean down into the cockpit to reach the lever. I could use my foot, but would not have good control and might crash into the dock. This is only a real issue when I come into the dock and need to shift to reverse and give it some throttle to stop the boat. Basically doing this blind.
How do you do it?
