Mercury 90 4S / Montauk Static Trim

I just saw a leftover "Factory Rigged" 2002 Montauk (Cathedral Hull) with a Mercury 90 Four-Stroke. The motor looked HUGE! The salesman told me it was the long shaft model. It seems like the weight on the stern would affect the static trim a great deal. I've also read (on this board) that the 25" shaft can also be a problem.
Has anyone run this combination?

A long shaft is 20". I'm sure there are several owners with this combo. Do a search and you find lots of info.

Sorry for the confusion...
I meant a Montauk 17 not 170. The 170 has a wider beam, and would probably handle the extra weight better. How would a classic-style Montauk do?

I see a lot of classic Montauks in the late 80's vintage with new yammie 100 4s, which is almost the same thing, and it affects static trim a little bit. But they all seem to be thrilled with the combination overall.
