    Default Need a Hand throttle for steering wheel

    May be the wrong forum to ask but maybe you can steer me in the right direction. With the help of JJ Beaver in Texas we are building a 79Hondo ski hydro with 588 chrysler power. I am a paraplegic and need a hand controled throttle. I have full use of my upper body.grip strength is not a problem. We are thinking maybe a butterfly type wheel and a squeeze throttle like a motocycle clutch lever. Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks Galen(Hillbilly)

    Several years ago there was a jet boat driver in SDBA named Mike Ward Jr. who was paralyzed and had hand controls on his raceboat.

    His dad, also named Mike used to have Mike's Pump and Speed in the Conroe-Houston, Texas area.

    Here is a link to his Facebook page and you can send him a message from there. He's a really good guy and I'm sure would love to help you.

    Hope that helps.

    Default thanks

    I got in contact with Mike, he uses a trim control mounted on the side for a throttle. This gives me another idea. Thanks for the info. Galen
