Tempest is on a distinguished road
I would prefer the tiller contol engine. The pearson is a heavy boat and the ability to steer with the engine comes in handy when getting in and out of a tight slips or docking and Backing into a slip

I teach sailing on 26' pearsons and we have the tiller control/throttle on the engine. I see only positives in this setup.
