    Im looking for a John boat for my short shaft motor. Finding lots of boats for the long shaft but not a short shaft. Anyone have any experience cutting down the transom on a John Boat to modify it for a short shaft motor? It dosen't seem like it would be difficult, but wanted to ask befor I tryed it.....

    Never heard of cuttin one down. You'll need to watch wash over if ya have to shut it down fast, or on a steep ramp. I had a short shaft 9.9 one time. Fine little engine.
