engine control

I need some recommendations on a new engine shifter. The one I have is side mounted in the cockpit. It is made by Teleflex. the probelem is it leaks! it is not weather sealed at all. On the delivery down here to the Virgin islands we continually had heavy spray and a few growlers drench us. It was a rough 1300 mile beat to weather.

Anyway, salt water came in thru the unit and down into the engine room. messed up my wiring in the engine room. I tried to seal it up best I could. Now it has died from corrosion. I have a new spare one, but was looking at it (its a newer version) and the design is still fairly bad as far as water intrusin goes.

I can't find anything that looks promising. Any ideas ???
