did they ask you to sign a disclaimer absolving them of any liability if the boat is damaged while in their care

i would personally name and shame them as that is piss poor service and others would be grateful of being warned from dealing with them in that they might recieve the same poor level of service

I thought that but the gears are labelled correctly. If it was a RHS throttle the gears would be the wrong way round! Having said that I'm of the opinion that the kill cord can't possibilly be right. Help!!

That type of kill switch will work fine from that angle, in fact, from virtually any angle.

That type of control would normally be mounted on the starboard side of a sportsboat cockpit (right hand drive boat) so IS the right way round, what makes it look odd, is that it's been revolved through about 90 degrees clockwise.

So in conclusion, it's the rib thats wrong, not the control.

But those throttles can be adjusted all shapes.

If you don't want to move the throttle backplate, you could remove the killswitch from the backplate and fit it directly into the console, then block the hole with a black grommet.

One thing I like though, is the posh metal crate the Veradon't was packed in You don't get that with an Opti - just cardboard and a bit of rough sawn.

Before naming and shaming them, I'd send them an email detailing exactly what you expect from them as compensation for your stolen property and inconenience. I'd also include a link to this thread.

Just got off the phone to Barrus and they say its been installed like that because there is no port hand mount throttle currently available.

I've been assured there are several other boats in the UK with them set up like this.

Regarding the theft.....lets wait and see.

Yeh, but it looks pants. If it were your boat (an obvious impossibility since it's an inflatable), I bet you wouldn't have mounted it like that.
