What drag penalty do you suffer using a long shaft outboard on a boat made for a short shaft ?
Honda 7.5 hp outboard BF75L 21" shaft on 12' aluminum utility with a standard 15" transom with wood on either side for mounting. Had a brand new 5 hp. w/15" shaft-stolen. What are the cons of the 21" shaft-should I try to add a few "-on trans.
