I could throttle you right about now: US Navy to ditch touchscreens after kit blamed for collision

Split throttles for each screw is common to allow low speed manoeuvrability, at low speeds there is not enough water flowing past the rudder to afford as tight a turning circle as can be achieved with split throttles.

That being said, to split the throttles across two screens is utter madness unless it is spelt out in bright flashing 144pt comic sans!
