Hydraulic steering or not?

9346 52
So I am debating on getting hydraulic steering on my new 16ft Skimmer Skiff with 50hp Tohatsu. It will cost an additional 745$ with tilt steering. Not sure if it is worth it. I really like the idea of the tilt steering helm. What is everyone's opinion?

I want hydro steering too. Cable steering is like steering on a 67 beetle. However I don’t have the issue of needing two hands while jacked up, and a cupped prop, it’s just sloppy. And I can get through deck fittings for hoses vs cable through a leaky boot. One day I may step up.
