i believe that a boat is perfectly able to stay on the throttle power you choosed in real life. if u give full speed with a real boat, and let the throttle go it will continue in the speed u choosed.

this is actualy great, because 1 man can operate the speedboats, giving the speed he wants then switch to gun-

This is an absolutely realistic behaviour of a boat throttle. Once you move it to a specific position it will stay there, even if you leave the drivers seat and go somwhere else. You can avoid this with a quickstop, but this is another story.

exactly. tried to say that xD soz my english.
