I am looking at a j/evin 30 hp jet outboard with a 20inch shaft. What does the whaler 13 require. Please Advise.

Ah.....usually with a jet you need to run a longer shaft so the 20" jet is what you need. Double check but I am almost positive.

it depends on what year 13 you have, the older ones took a 15 the newer ones needed a 20. check the history section to find the cutoff.

Buy a Jack Plate and get a 20" shaft http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/SiteSearch?storeId=10001&catalogId=10001&keyword=Jack+plate any of those jack plates will be fine it will also make your boat increase speed by 20-25 MPH it did with my 1972 13' Whaler with a 40 HP yamaha 2003. I do 54 MPH.
