Default turn props in or out

I am rigging a 38 top gun stepped hull with # 6 drives, should they turn in or out? how does the 39 turn in or out?

I just found out my props have been turning out since I bought my boat, go figure I never knew, lol. On a step bottom boat you want them to turn in, no gain in performance as far I have been told. My boat picked up 2 mph when they turned the props back in, but I believe straight bottom boats may be different?

Not true. Every bravo T/S Top gun/Tiger that came out of Cigarette is set up spinning out. It all depends on drive height, drives, props, bottom ect. I've run T/S Guns spinning in and out and out run a little better overall on a Bravo boat. A number 6 is a whole different ball game.

I have found that out most Cigarettes are built with there props spinning out, but each model is different, and each handle differently turned in or out, go figure, you learn something new everyday, lol
