|"The unusual feature of the boat is that it will have no steering wheel but will be steered by means of a rudder bar worked with the feet.
Elimination of a gear box provides a direct drive to each propellor which turn in opposite directions, and, according to D’Eath, will permit higher speeds on the turns and easier handling.
Each motor will have a separate throttle and the driver will operate them with both hands. This Is how D'Eath plans to negotiate the turns faster by cutting the speed on one motor
