Anyone know if a two-lever engine control is being made

26 foot sailboat with a 1gm10 yanmar

My question is does anyone know if a two lever sidemount engine control with
a robust friction adjuster (for throttle creep) is still being made like the
old teleflex morse. It seems they only make a single lever control now.
There is one out there but the nearly 600USD price is out of my league.
Also isn't there a used boat part place in RI, I just can't remember the
name.

Thank you all.

Throttle creep

We once made our own anti-creep device on a two lever system that worked quite well.
Take a short(2") piece of rubber hose (I.D. about equal to the outer cable cover O.D) and slit it lengthwise. Where the cable connects to the mechanism inside, clamp the hose tightly to the cover, overlapping the exposed cable end that moves. Then apply a small hose clamp over that end and adjust the tension so that you can still adjust the throttle but it provides enough friction to eliminate creep.
Costs next to nothing, is out of sight, ours worked for years ( and may still be doing so - we sold the boat)

Cheers
Ron

The real question is why would you want such a device?
