    Long Shaft or Short Shaft?

    I am going to buy an outboard motor for my Capri 14.2 to get me out on to the lake. Will a short shaft motor work or do I need to get the long shaft? I have been able to find a couple of short shafts for sale but no long shafts. Any recomendations? Anyone got a suitable motor they want to sell?
