There are only two shaft lengths. Measure from the inside bottom of the transom bracket to the shaft center.

BTW, for future refernce, I believe the measurment is from the inside bottom of the transom bracket to the top of the cavitation plate, above the propeller.

Many motors come in three lengths, (S) short shaft 15.5", (L) long shaft 20". (XL) is extra long 25"
