I bought a 2011 gheenoe classic and am looking to buy a 20 hp motor. Is anyone running a short shaft motor? I'm worried about cavatation. I have a 13 gheenoe with a 9.9 hp 20 inch shaft Mercury, put that motor on the Classic had no problems and hit 20mph with a decent fishing load.
Currently measurements are 17 inch transom, 19 inches from the stationary jackplate. (Came with boat)
They ran a older mercury 25hp long shaft.

Would love to hear from other gheenoers
That have tried this but all comments and suggestions are appreciated.
