188 Mike Yamaha F225 loss of throttle control 7/29/2004 9:40:00

Has anyone ever encountered this? I have a '04 2320SC with a Yam. 225
4 Stroke. A couple times I noticed the engine slow to get the message
when closing the throttle to dead slow approaching my dock. A couple
weks ago at 25 mph, I could not slow down at all. I turned off the
key and restarted in N. The RPM's zoomed up. after several minutes
they drifted down enough for me to place it in gear, (though still
way too fast). Any advancing of the throttle sent the RPMs way up
again. I managed to get it home but wished I could have chanced going
to the dealer's dock with that still going on. They have dissambled
the Morse dual station controls and reassembled them to the letter.
The situation has not been duplicated in their hands. Engine data has
been taken by comp. and sent to the engine mfg'r. No answer as yet or
nothing has presented itself and it will be two weeks soon. I
understand there was an earlier F225 throttle issue but my motor has
the fix and was made after.
Any ideas as right now the boat is sitting at the dealers dock
collecting bottom growth and depreciating.
