strange setup.

Whilst trawling through eBay I came across this!
Never seen the throttles on either sides of the consul before.
Canít be user friendly or am I missing something?

Not sure it is very user friendly when it gets bumpy. I have seen throttles on one side and separate gear levers on the other side before but I have to agree that the boat I'm the photo is only suitable for an octopus or someone that can operate a steering wheel with their leg and still stay upright when they bounce off a wave.
