Default Spinning Props Inward Or Outward

I just can't recall what was the affect on the boat to spin props inward or outward... Can you guys tell me?

On my old straight bottom Top Gun, I spin them in for more bow lift.

I'd be curious to spin them out cause I think I'm running with the bow too high...

Nice picture by the way!

Depending on your boat, On some step bottoms you spin the props out for more control keeps the nose down, Most deep Vs spin in for bow lift and better speed.

Turning bravo's in on a 382 Fastech. No ill handling at speed. Lifts the bow a little. Takes more finessing around the dock and windy conditions.

As RedDog said in for bow lift and out for easy maneuvering at the docks.

I spin them in on my single step 35 Fountain, however I do sacrifice control, backing and around the docks.

Each hull design reacts differently. My 32 Sunsation for instance reacts no different in or out other than loss of dock handling. So they spin out. Type props impacts the results too.

Arrow Re: Spinning Props Inward Or Outward

I found outward spin with cupped props was best for me.

-The props lifted the back-end out and up faster and kept the bow up just enough to give optimum speed and ride comfort. So planing was faster.The tabs could get the bow up more if needed.

-Spinning inward tends to glue the back end down more so the only benefit I see is faster turns but a bit of speed is scrubbed. Tabs seem less responsive.

-Handling with outward spin is a breeze when docking.

Jeff on TRS you have to switch the lower units to try that I think.

Docking sucks if your spinning in.
