As reported on these pages I modified my Bennington to make it my own. One of the modifications involved replacing the original single lever control with the a vintage dual lever control for twin engines. Thirty years ago when I found this control I said “someday I will find a home for this”. So it came to pass that I did find a home but what a mistake. First of all I had to add remote trim switch’s because the old control did not have switch’s. Then I had redo my switch control in order to keep one hand on the wheel and the other on the throttle. Finally after all that I discovered the old boat control was crap. It had excessive friction do to poor geometry. Last week I tore off the old control and replaced it with a modern low effort control having integral trim switches. Live and learn. Hope someone finds this interesting or at lease laughable.
