Rib Engine Shaft Advise
Will be delivering in some weeks 2; empty console & seats, short shaft transoms 420 & 440 Ribs to a client for surfers towing purposes. The maximun factory recommended engine is 40 HP short shaft for both models, would like to know what would be the advantage or disadvantage issue of using the same 40 HP but in the long (20") shaft engine. What problems in the long run would be expected to have, any transom issues ? Any imput data will be highly appreciated.
