Tiller skiffs are very handy when you want a minimum skiff with as little to "go wrong" as possible. Many that have one use it as their second skiff - and they're definitely not for everyone. With a tiller you're lighter weight, have more interior room in a small skiff, etc. For those that have never seen them many these days are equipped with an extension connected to the tiller which allows you to stand up an extra three feet or so in front of your motor, so these kinds of rigs are a lot different than what you see up in freshwater areas...
For anyone wanting to learn all there is to know about them (and whether one might be in their future...) just go to Microskiff.com and check out what folks that run, modify, build, etc. skiffs 16' and under are doing. Guarantee it will be an eye opener if you are just learning about working up in shallow waters with a small skiff...

In rough seas, its hard to control a tiller outboard unless you are strapped down really well. Tillers are fine in flat water.
