1996 Mercury 175 EFI outbaord motor

I have a 1996 Bayliner Rendezvous deck boat that I have had for several years. Cylinder 3 is dead and I have to repower this beast. There appear to be two different shaft length for this motor, 20" and 25". I have combed the internet for any mention of the shaft length that my boat should be using. Can anyone point me to a resource that would lead me to the right motor? What would happen if I needed a long shaft and put a short shaft on or vice versa? Thanks in advance for dropping some knowledge on me.
