Indeed, I do remember that boat.  How has she been running?  It appears that you current problem  is a seized up (from sitting all winter) shift cable.  From what I read into what you write, sounds as if the throttle cable is fine.  If you can, unhook the shift cable under the cowl and see if you can shift it manually (with out the remote lever).  If you can, then you need to replace the shift cable.  DO NOT PULL IT OUT WITHOUT ATTACHING A STRONG STRING TO ONE END SO THAT YOU CAN PULL THE NEW ONE THROUGH THE HULL.  If you dont do that, you will say many bad words when you try to put the new on in.
