Question Pearson 26 outboard suggestions?

Recently bought a P26 with an 10+ year old, 8hp Nissan. It has a gear/throttle remote control box in the engine well. No tiller control on the engine, it's locked in a single position so we can't use it for steering. We can only steer using the boat's tiller.
Looking to upgrade to 9.8hp (at least) but didn't know if this set-up was better than a standard outboard with a tiller control (gear and throttle on tiller) with the ability to steer using the motor rather than having the motor locked down and steering only with the rudder.

Any suggestions or comments?
