Thanks for all your help. I will probably come back to this post again in the future to get more info.
Wait with machining the hole for the linear drive in the tiller arm until you have selected the drive unit.

Have a look at packages. Both Raymarine and Garmin have packages that include linear drive - maybe you can get a off season price
