  • Scott HB Transom Heights

    Does anyone actually know for sure the physical differences between the short and long shaft versions? I contacted Scott/Abitbi but they weren't much help at all.

    Sorry mate, never have seen the long tail version. Scott at Kanoe people likely has an idea?

      Mine is the long shaft version but was curious what the differences are. Do you have a shot of your transom, or know what the height is? Want to play with my height a bit.
      Gotten out yet?

        I'm just leaving for a hunt but I will try to photo my friend's low transom and my high transom for you.

        While I usually run a 20HP long shaft on my high transom, I have run 8hp short shaft successfully on the high transom.
        Cavitation only happened with WOT full turns.

        I ran 19' Grummans for years and I had always raised the transom 3" with no problem.

          Thanks Vern. Im totally happy with my long shaft Suuzki, works great on the lakes and deeper water. Was thinking that if everything was equal, and performed just as well, a short shaft would be the better choice on the high transom model.

                My short shaft transom has a 5" cut out.

                Also I sold my 20HP a long time ago but you are welcome to borrow my 6 to see how a short shaft works on your boat.

                      I ran an 8 hp, Yamaha Short Shaft, on mine used a lift with about a foot set back. Was always surprised how far I could raise motor under power the following wave allowed the motoro run without cavitation.

                      Ran a 20 HP Tohatsu Short Shaft that set on the transom would not run as shallow without the lift. Motor was to heavy for my lift.
