long or short shaft?

I have a 1964 S&S Rainbow 24'' sloop. It''s my understanding that it normally needs an outboard with a long shaft. But, this particular craft has been modified with an inboard well for the motor. Does that change anything? It seems like a short shaft would now work. But, I''m not really sure. Does anyone know how to determine this?
