Most RIBS do seem to have the throttle on the right but IMHO thats wrong!
If you are right handed then to me its better to have right hand on the wheel and left on the throttle. (When the going gets tough then you drive with both throttle and wheel dont you.) The other benefits of a throttle mounted to the left of the wheel are that you can take control of the throttle as a front seat passenger if you are teaching an experienced driver - e.g. concentrate on steering and I'll handle throttle incl. emergency stop if it all goes wrong
Blue Ice has her throttle on the left hand side and I much preferred that to my previous RIB where it was on the outside of the console on the right hand side. This is of course the default position cos its cheaper and allows use of the std side mount gear and throttle as opposed to the more expensive top mount.
Roy. Nice Looking RIB and well done for using Andy as he's a top bloke!
One thing you might want to consider is putting some padding around the top of your windscreen. Looks like an awfully hard edge for you to headbutt if you stuff the rib badly at speed!
