One of my buddies uses a minn kota tiller until he forgot to raise it up and rammed it into a dock with the big motor. Now he has a remote operated one, and hates it. Spends more time staring at that fob trying to navigate around stuff, and it "doesn't turn worth a chit". Run a tiller on my boat, everyone that fishes with me knows how to operate it, and when we are on the fish, we just keep sticking and moving. Go tiller.
