The "big tiller" has a hydraulic assist power steering arrangment on it.

I know Merc have their Big Tiller for larger O/B's but I would've thought most manufacturers would go up to 50-60hp with tiller control for the larger sibs and other open boats?
I'm getting slightly worried. A tender for Martini II with a 60Hp outboard

I know of one Polaris Inflatable (about 18' or so) that had a Honda 4-stroke 90 with tiller control. It's since been changed to remote steering, but the original owner used it for years with the tiller.

No idea if the 90 had to be modified back to tiller or if it was available off the shelf that way.

I would, but with me sat in the back it would never get on the plane and there's something ungraceful about doing 8 knots flat out with the bow 7 foot up in the air and burning about a gallon a mile
