I don't have a lot of experience with outboards, but it appears that a throttle friction tensioner would make life a lot more comfortable. My Tohatsu is, thankfully, a very easy, short throw (or twist) throttle, but, even so, an hour or so of holding it gets to be a real chore. From my mototcycle racing days, I remember there were an add-on touring products that clamped to the grip housing, extended to the twist throttle and by which throttle tension could be easily set. Is there such a product for Outboards? ... I sure can't find one ... or ...has anyone else come up with another approach to this?
