Outboard manufacturers have diagrams of their outboards showing how the shaft length corresponds to the transom.  Basically, the cavitation plate should be just below the bottom.

This is true in theory. But if you go forward and the prop comes out of the water, your perfect setup suddenly isn't. It's probably not a problem on a boat like the 11N, but on my cs20.3, I had to get a long shaft after trials.

The discussion is about a motor for a motor boat. In a small motor boat you trim the weight as needed, motoring is what you are doing. An auxilliary for a sailboat is totally different, both in function and application.
