Hi,
Dose anyone know the length of a standard shaft outboard. Ive never heard of this terminology before as its normally short, long or extra long.

Thanks.

Thanks. I thought 20" is what they refer to as long shaft or is it just a different terminology for the same thing?

Don't you just measure the transom from top to lowest point to dictate the size from clamps to cav plate?
So the cav plate is level with the bottom of the boat at the transom.
