To be honest I’m driving with the big motor so little that it doesn’t matter. I don’t fish big water never loose visual of shore. It gets up and scoots in my op for what it is, and not hard to manage as far as steering goes. If I would change anything it would be a stand up bar and a longer handle ... but then again I’m short so it might not be an issue for a taller person.How do you like having the tiller on a 1760 with a 50hp? would you rather have a side console?
