Craig..I think i have a guy interested in your big props
I'm 99.9% sure that they are sold. A friend of Biggus's wants them...but he hasn't gotten them from me yet. If it falls thru, I'll let you know. TheDonz was also interested.

Ok, I thought about it more and am more confused.

If you look at the TOP of the prop, I can see where a LH prop on the starboard side pushes water in at the top.

But Ive always looked at them from the bottom and If you do it that way, a LH prop on the port side is pushing water IN from the bottom.

Now im really confused.

I have been told you should swap Bravos as well, especially if you have a few hours on them. The gear sets develop a wear pattern after being run a certain direction. Just what I have been told but it makes sense.

"What does it take to runs your props inward...?"

That's easy! Some sockets, a ratchet and the desire to go a little faster at the expense of good docking.!
