Default Left handed prop on single engine❗️❗️❗️

Hey guys, I have a 27 fountain fever with a single blue 500 efi with a left handed prop, is this set up right for this boat? She seems to run fine! 74mph top speed.
Thanks!!

Fountains came stock with the left handed prop, I believe. The plus side is used LH props are typically cheaper.

Most formula and fountain single engine boats run a left hand prop. Jeff Wurl

A left handed prop is to offset a "torque lean" typically.
