Default What length of longtail for 19 inch transom





I have an Osage Vantage. From the top of the transom plate to the bottom of the hull is 20 inches. I know they say it is a 15 inch transom and a short shaft outboard but it is still 19 inches. I have a 55 inch Stump Jumper 7 HP Subaru on the back right now and the pitch of the motor when running seems pretty steep. I am looking at options for a new complete motor or just frame. I do have a New Predator 13 hp in the box.


So what length of longtail should I be looking at?

Try shimming the transom to get a better angle.

from the measurements you posted I think you will be happier and see better results from a longer shaft, like a 72", it will give you greater reach and flatten the angle making it easier/more comfortable to drive.
