Default Best way for props to turning on a 28 Pantera

Are their any advantages to have your props turning in on a 28 Pantera? And what way does everybody have their props turning in or out?

Pantera is a conventional hull, I would think that you'd want bow lift...right???

I would turn them out, bow lift is more controllable than stern lift, it makes the boat squirrelly and feels like it is sloppy. I like bow lift and the feel of the a$$ planted, yea you may pick up 2-3 mph turning in but at the cost of handling, including wave jumping, and docking. In is horrible to maneuver and dock, compared to out that is, not surface dives. Try both, that's the only way to know what you like. I would just bring it to shore and do it in the water, then take off again.

I had a 28 Pantera and tried turning them in, no extra speed was gained and the boat was a hand full to operate.......
