RIB with Tiller for ocean use

I picked up an old 16’ Floating Motomar and the motor was seized so I swapped in a 50 Yamaha 4 stroke tiller control motor I’ve had for a while. What are the benefits or drawbacks for using this setup in the saltwater?
I’m in Alaska so Prince William Sound, Resurrection Bay and Kachemak bay are all close enough halibut grounds.
Also what do you all use for seating and rod holders?

Tiring if you are doing it for hours on end. Short fishing trip, no problem. There is also an advantage in that you can take the engine off easily to store inside during the winter or take it to be serviced etc.

ive sat on the tubes for years drove for hours with tiller engines upto 40 hp with no probs, you can buy rod tubes that can be screwed on to the transom and bench seats can be made easily
