Tiller vs Outboard for steering

IMHO, I think that this is something that you are going to have to find what works best for you. I put my motor in a locked position and I use the tiller to come in and out of my slip...I have no problems with that and found it to be more comfortable for me than just using the motor. My boat is also a 23...I would suggest trying both and see what you are more comfortable with...your skills, your motor,etc., all come into play here and I think whatever you feel safe with is more important.
