If you look at the join between tapering lower engine panels and the leg and check the distance from that to the anti-ventilation plate above prop on the one above and compare it with the Poole Ebay listing Honda you can see how much shorter the Poole one is.

99.9% sure it's a short shaft but don't buy on my 99.9% feeling without measuring!
If its a 2014 maybe they were fitting leftover long shaft 420 transoms?

Well that's weird as the Aerotec is a normal short shaft transom... if long shaft they are straight across the top and that one curves down.

50cm would make it a long shaft but it really doesn't look it. Wonder if he measured the wrong place... I've had that before and got folks to send me an image of where they're measuring.

See the outboard didn't sell but the boat did.... was it you CC?

well 50cms = 20 inches which is a long shaft. But 380 aerotecs have always been short shaft, 15inches. Something doesn't ring true. Any photos of the back end of the boat? if its a long shaft the prop and plate above the prop will be well below the lowest point of the transom. if the plate is level with the bottom of the transom or maybe a fraction below then its a short shaft. If the transom has a couple of steps in the top edge it is a short shaft transom. if its flat all the way across then you may have found the only aerotec 380 with a long shaft transom!

Assume for a moment I'm wrong and the outboard is a long shaft... what dealer would make such a mistake??

As I say you'd hope the seller might have some paperwork on the outboard that would confirm what it is.... unless the dealer was totally clueless and knew it fitted but thought it a long shaft anyway.

We need answers!
