Tiller control

Hi

I've been told of a friend of a friend that is selling a 4.5m inflatable not 100% if its a rib or a sib as i have not viewed it yet. Before I get too serious, it can take up to a 50hp I'm a bit concerned that I might struggle to find a 50 which has a tiller. Would this be a problem?

Any advise great fully recieved

Jay

Holes bay marine seemed to have a few good engines when i went in there the other day. Holes Bay Marine used stock

Theres plenty of tillers out and about! If your going for something like a 50hp with pull start, they can be a bit heavy to start compared to small engines but you soon get used to it.

Yeah it doesnt look bad from the photos! Im not sure about bigger engines but ive also used yellow penguin at parkstone bay marina before when i bought a suzuki 5hp which had hardly been used. Got that for a good price so might also be worth a look

Zapcats do tiller control 50 on a weekly basis!

50 with tiller is maybe not as big a problem as "do you like spinach for breakfast?"

The 50 on my thundercats fine for me with steering even with a damper, its fine tilting & starting but if it decides it doesnt want to start after 6 pulls you need a break!
