Any thoughts would be appreciated! Cheers.
The Zodiac Grand Raid MKIII is a tough old beast. Get the aluminium floor version. You'll need at least 50hp to move it though, which is about as big as I'd go if you're considering a tiller-steer system. You can of course fit remote steering. Can I ask what kind of work it will be used for?
