Etec 90 throttle and gears

I'm yet to get the cowel off one of these or see one with the controls attached...I'm assuming the gears are still cable operated but what about the throttle, the last few cars I have owned are by wire and wondered if outboards have adopted similar technology??

From what I have read I think the Verado is one of the few with fly by wire (should that be "sail by wire"??) technology.

Mind you the good old cable throttle in vehicles seems to give less trouble so it may not be a bad thing to be old tech in a salty environment!
