Autopilot does the steering and the throttle looks after itself. That leaves one hand for putting in another CD and the other for pickin me nose.

Well deflected Mr Big, but rather irrelevant and if it's all the same to you, I'd still rather you and your dangerously over-confident ribnobbers stayed well away from me whilst you're 'performing'.

The red bit of string just gets in the way so leave it hanging!
Push the throttle forward one hand on the wheel to steady your self as you do not want to spill the gin!
Works for me!

I think they'd be very evenly matched. I know who'd be missing a few fillings after a blast on a choppy day though!

I find this gives me much finer control, especially when bouncing about a bit.
Same here, except throttle side is reversed (left hand steers, right hand on binnacle, controlling the throttle shaft.)

If I need the radio, I use throttle hand, for GPS adjustments, I use the steering hand (this probably has more to do with the layout than anything, though.)
