If your throttle is sticking or damaged in any way i HIGHLY suggest you replace the cable, reason being, you do not have any brakes, and with a 2 stroke engine, if the throttle sticks at a high enough rpm, the kill switch may not shut the engine down. That situation rarely happens with a load on the engine (in the water) however i have had a few rev uncontrolably on the trailer.
