I know I spend a lot of time on this blog writing about outboard oil, but today I’d like to focus on controls. Why controls? They are the primary contact point for most boat drivers, but I doubt most boat owners know much about them.
For example, did you know that while controls come in different shapes and styles, most have a dual-function in that they control both the throttle and shift. Single-engine controls typically have one handle, while dual installations have two. Boats with multiple engines are often accompanied by controls that have more handles.
