Re:- Zodiac 3.4m cadet solid - long / short shaft

Hello
Newbies first question so please be gentle.
I currently have a Zodiac Cadet 3.4m solid rib and two outboards to choose from, one being a long and the other a short shaft both 4hp.
My question is, is it possible to run the rib using the long shaft motor? The distance between the top of the transom to the keel is 17" and the manuals etc recommend using a short shaft, but would there be any issues re stability if using the long shaft option.
As both motors are 4hp I'm only looking for pottering around in clam waters.
Many thanks

Short shaft,Long shaft will use a lot of power.
