Short 15", Long 20", Extra Long 25", Ultra Long 30". Not all manufacturers supply ultra long. Some conversion kits are available from the states.

Youll need extra long arms too if you ever need to clear the prop of plaggy bags or weed : )

Once had to go to the aid of a sailing boat that had one fitted on the back & the biat was drifting ashore ,
the sheer pin had broken on the prop , he had spare pins but he couldent reach out far enough to get the prop off , he couldent get the engine off the transom as the bolts were seized up .

How about this cracy XXXXXXXUL shaft adaptation mounted on a 2 strokes Yam 85 HP engine, even has a lower leg bumper. These guys uses an octopus to get rid of propeller entanglements...

Happy Boating

I made a superdooper xxxl Yamaha malta with 4 long shaft spacers in it. It worked perfect for years. I tried 5 but we couldn't get enough water pressure and it overheated.
