This motor has a 25" shaft and runs very well. It is portable because it is the lighter, two stroke weight. It is electric start, and it would also make a great kicker motor for fishing or for a sailboat because it is a long shaft, tiller steer.
I think this motor has been in Lake Norman all of its life, not in saltwater. The mineral deposits have been cleaned off the foot and the paint is still good.
See this video of it running:
I also have other motors, boats and trailers. Here are most of my ads: http://charlotte.craigslist.org/search/sss?userid=13325410
