Be interested to hear how you get on if you find one. I'd always thought if you could be bothered with the setup they'd balance the Aerotec perfectly one-up.

But having just tried mine on holiday solo with me on the seat I found it was quite twitchy with bow steer effects. Mind you I guess you could help this a bit by moving the fuel tank to near the transom.

If i can find one i will let you know the results. Dont want to buy new as may not get on with it, however just had a week on Mull at Fidden campsite and there was an Aerotec with steering on the site and it seemed to go really well.

I was thinking of getting a small rib but now not so sure. Would really miss not being able to drag it up the beach so just looking at different options for mine. Im not against using the tiller but will try it on remotes and see which i prefer.
