If budget allows then for that size I think hydraulic is worth it.
You'll probably end up spending £300 on a new cable and head unit in any case.
I'd agree on going "hydro" if the budget allows but it won't cost £300 for standard. Even the higher rated "safe T" or "no feedback" kit with wheel etc, rated up to 250hp will only cost £185 delivered (based on 13ft cable, others up to 18ft cost £195)
You could buy the cheaper kit for £110 but you'll be in the same boat in 2 years, pardon the pun!
Here's the SafeT kit
