  1. Hi , I need help in determining the shaft length of an O/B motor.I'm in the process of buying a boat that does not come with an O/B motor.So how do you tell if an outboard is a short shaft, long shaft ? where do you take your measurements from on the motor itself to determine the type of shaft the motor is ?Thank you,HammerHeadHank
