Foot throttles like the T-H Marine HOT FOOT make driving console/steering wheel boats on par to driving a car. This has obvious safety benefits, the primary being two hands on the wheel for increased boat control. Wired2Fish’s Ryan DeChaine outlines the top 3 situations where he’s come to depend on the HOT FOOT for throttle control.
But there remain times where the boater may opt for hand throttle speed control. The beauty is, foot and hand throttles can co-exist with fly-by-wire enabled outboard engines. This provides boaters the option of choosing hand or foot throttle with a simple button push.
