Montauk Kicker Long Shaft?

From a previous post, I was informed that a 20" shaft would work for a Montauk (1988) kicker, but could you also use a motoer designated "a long shaft"? I assume that the shaft is 23". Thanks for the info.

A 20" shaft is a "long" shaft in some circles. With bigger and bigger motors, the term "long shaft" has come to mean a 25" shaft motor and 20" meaning "regular shaft"
In the case of small kicker motors, a 25" shaft motor would be called an "extra long shaft" motor.
To answer your question, yes a 25" shaft motor would work in so much as a kicker will not put you Montauk on a plane, but the extra long shaft will probably be dragging in the water at most speeds.

25" shafts on kickers are usually designated as "sail" engines and have special props and decals. You want a 20".
