short shaft or long shaft

7 posts in this topic

I'm curious what size motor I need on my boat. It's a 14' crestliner with a 14" high transom. Would a short shaft work on this boat? I found a motor I'd like to go look at with 17" from the boat clamp to the top of the fin above the prop. Would this work?

Thanks!

Perfect! I can tell you anything you want to know about hovercraft drivetrains, but when it comes to details on a boat, I'm clueless.

Bought the motor. Thanks!

It's registered as a boat, so nothing else is required to use it. I sold it last year but plan on building another one next year. You can check out other pics on my website which is my user name with com at the end.
