    I am looking for around a 20HP motor or smaller for a 16' aluminum jon boat that will be used for primarily fishing CJ Brown and the GMR... and would like it to be affordable!!!

    Measure from the top of your transom right where your motor would go to the bottom of your boat. If it measures around 15 inch you need a short shaft. If it measures around 20 inch you need a long shaft.

    If you can look your boat up on the web. The manufacturers site using the model number should reveal the trasom height.
