Kicker-short or long shaft?

Discussion in 'Boats and Motors' started by ohiou_98, Jul 12, 2007.

  1. How do I determine whether I need a short or long shaft kicker? (Measure from the top of the kicker plate to the bottom of the boat?)
  2. 20" transom = long shaft

    15" transom = short shaft

    25" transom = xl shaft

    i use a short shaft off to the side and it works ,but the sghaft is 18 inces not the standard 15. if it were in the middle of the boat(deep v ) the 4 hp would be too short.
