Yes I agree with Mollers, for what it's worth as a "newbie" I don't see an advantage either.

Ofcourse, but for me I like being able to have the engine ticking over and shoot the revs up quick with out the minuet pause you get with single lever. Specially good when maintaining a fixed position bow to the tide.

The difference is slight and I well understand what your all saying. But having used this system allot I like it.

How about fitting a tiller to your 115? It's an idea.

Where does this pause come from with a single lever control box?

Once you're in gear, the throttle action is immediate. Far quicker than engaging gear with one lever, then leaving go of that to move your hand to the 2nd lever to activate the throttle

Is your single lever control box working correctly?

Have you thought about the pause you'll encounter by taking your hand off the control box to alter the trim on your console mounted trim switch when you get up on the plane.

Why have 3 controls when 1 will do the job?

LOL really touched with this one

Right, as I said before all single lever controls I've used (and this doesn't count for the 703 as I haven't used it yet) have had a very slight pause when you go from neutral to move. It really isn't noticeable except on big inboards where the cable is moving big gears around. It's still been there on the outboards I've used but nothing you would notice. However for the fluid movement of already being in gear plus being that use to using this type of control I like it. The technique of going from forwards to reverse is easy to master and yes it is easier with single but once your used to it it's easy.
Biggest down fall as you say is the trim switch being away from the column.

Not forgetting something here lads, I didn't start this thread by saying you should all use this system it's better than what you've got. I like it, can't say it enough. And just wanted to know if anyone had done it and where was the best place to shop.
Looking around at the prices of a decent twin lever that would fit a console, it looks an expensive I could do with using elsewhere. Idea for the future though.

Cracking idea, may interrupt my rear parking sensors on the transom though

I'm not with you here. Could you explain?
