short shaft or long shaft

Question

hovermn

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.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
