cavitating or hydrodynamics?


As i wrote in another thread, i can't get my outboard down enough to reach the end of the hull. Now it never cavitates, even at sharp turns.
Are there any other reasons to get an outboard down to the end of the transom as often recommended? Hydrodynamic reasons? Or is it just a matter of cavitating or not?

thanks a lot
