As for the tiller issue, I replaced my wine with a shorter one made out of hazelnut wood. I thought it was too long too.

Agreed on the headroom, just a few more inches in height would be nice.
I owned a US 25 back when they were being made. As the the tiller, I also made it shorter and added a extension to it. I used the existing tiller, and cut the end , rounded and revarished it and put tiller cover on it.
I tested one with a buidlt in engine, and it was great for handling since the prop was in front of the rudder.
