Re: Is this throttle position trouble?
Actually, I think the throttle lever is better located than the autopilot control. I could live with the throttle, but I think the control would be digging into my back. I'd be leaning against the autopilot control and accidentally pressing buttons all the time. It also takes a little getting used to having it behind you, since the button position is the reverse of what you expect (push stbd button, boat turns to port). Mine is located behind me, but in my boat there's no seating along the transom, so it doesn't dig into my back, but I still bump the buttons occassionally.
Nice looking boat for the money. I wouldn't let either of those bother me. The controller is easy to move- just replace the current cutout with a Beckson plate.
