I own a 40 hp tiller steer on a 16 ft flat bottom. I like it very much for what I use it for. I fish below the dam and my son uses it for duck hunting. I agree that a long run can get pretty tiresome, but there is a friction adjustment on my 40 merc. that makes it a little more comfortable. There is also a friction adjustment on the steering where as you don't have to grip it very hard to maintain a straight line. I have power trim on my tiller and it is great. I would reccommend it on either model. I think it depends on what you personally want yourself and what types fishing you are going to do.
