Looking for info on the short shaft shallow water motors... I've always either had bug boats with big motors or aluminum flats with mud motors... I wanting to get a 90-115 hp motor for my flats boat... I've seen a couple boats with a shorter lower unit then others,. Could someone explain these more to me... Thanks

Not sure what you mean by short shaft shallow water motor.

I am not an expert on motors but many motors of that size are available with different shaft lengths (20", 25", 30", and 35" shafts). But what I do not know is what you mean by shallow water.

Are you talking about a low water pickup? Bobs machine shop is the only one I know who will mod a lower for you.

Sorry I've seen a lot of boats with ob that the lower units are real short.... Most of these boats are shallows water boats... I was assuming the reason for a shorter lower unit is more speed and function in skinny water.... I will try and gets couple of pics....
