Yamaha 70HP throttle slipping

 Hi guys,

I have a 70hp 2 stroke Yamaha outboard.

When driving in swell/ seas and the boat bangs the throttle control slips from the position it was in (losing speed). Is there anything I can do or a way I can tighten this up?

 There is a throttle friction adjustment, depending on the type of control box you have decides where it is. On the standard side mount it is at the front and is a little alloy screw
