    It is imperative to accurately measure the transom mount height for an Epropulsion outboard. Having the wrong measurement for the shaft length can drastically affect the performance of the outboard. If the measurement taken is too short for the transom mount, the propeller will not sit deep enough in the water. When the propeller does not sit deep enough in the water it will cavitate and decrease efficiency. If the measurement taken is too long for the transom mount, the propeller will sit too deep into the water. When a propeller sits too low behind a boat, it will have increased water resistance and reduced speeds.

    How to Find Your Shaft Length

    If you are looking for an ePropulsion electric outboard for your boat, choosing the correct shaft length is important. 

    *NOTE* TAKACAT, Aircat, Bris and other Fully Inflatable Catamarans require the SHORT Shaft - due to shallow transom depth in the water. 

    Please note that ePropulsion has a different shaft length measurement from gas-powered outboards. For electric outboards, the shaft length is measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the center of the propeller. For gas outboards, it’s measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the anti-ventilation plate.

    As you can see, our XS is close to S from Mercury. Our S is close to L from Mercury. Our L is longer than L from Mercury. See below.

    To find the suitable shaft length, the principle is to make sure the top of the propeller is matched to the lowest point of the transom. In order to get the right shaft length, first, measure the transom height, the length from the top of the boat transom to the bottom of the boat.

    After that, you could choose the recommended shaft length based according to the transom height.

    For most small dinghies and aluminum boats under 15ft, extra short shaft and short will work, depending on the transom height, some over 15.7 inches, some not.

    For boats with the transom height higher than 50 cm / 19.7 inches, a long shaft version is more suitable. For daysailers, sports boats and other sailing boats it’s best to measure the distance from the water line to the top of your outboard mount.

    Came on on time will try when water gets warmer

    As Advertised

    Only had it for a short time, but it is exactly as expected. I must admit that the power is a bit lacking in heavy winds, but sufficient nonetheless, and no more gas onboard? Well, that's just @#$% GREAT!

    Dewayne Jenkins
    Very Pleased with the ePropulsion motor - exactly what we needed

    The ePropulsion motor performed as expected in every way. After watching a number of YouTube video reviews (Tiny Boat’s too), we were convinved it would be the perfect alternative for our dinghy as we complete the Loop. We needed something that is light, easy to store and mount on the dinghy, easy maintenance and with ample power to get us and provisions to and from the boat in anchorages. The ePropulsion unit was the perfect choice. Ordering through Tiny Boat was easy and the shipment arrived quickly and packeged very well. Tiony Boat’s Customer Assistance was very responsive and they followed up on the order well. I highly recommend BOTH the ePropulsion electyric motor and Tiny Boat Nation.

    I haven’t been able to use the motor on the water yet, but it is very quiet and sturdily built.

    Too new to tell

    With the ice still floating around the lake I will not be able to use this for a month or so. I will tell you then how I like it.
