    Please advise if anyone has attempted this conversion, as I am considering repowering a skiff and need a 20" motor and all I am able to locate is 25" models. Thanks for your help...... :-/

    Not hard, just going to need to find a 20 in midsection and a 20 in drive shaft, or complete lower unit. To change drive shafts your going to have to re shim the whole lower unit. Your better off keep looking good for a complete 20
