The boat is completely apart now as i am doing a total rebuild fresh gelcoat. The trs stuff is gone. My receipt says a righthand drive but with the dealer out of business now. The shipping i agreed to and was happy that i would not have to spend any money on any other parts to make it a right hand. I feel that Konrad is doing right by me.

Right hand rotation is normally used on singles to counteract the weight of the driver on the right side of the boat. If your boat is perfectly balanced side-to-side as you usually run it, then drive roatation should have no physical effect. On the other hand, if you always run with some "generously proportioned" guests on the left side of the boat (or keep your oversize cooler over there), left hand rotation would be better.

Left hand props will probably always be harder to find, though...

Sorry for the delay in reply, been on the road for the past few days.

Typically we try to set up single engine boats with a left hand drive as the left hand unit is a bit stronger than a right hand due to the placement of the lower drive gear. I suggest trying it to see how the boat runs with a left hand configuration.
If you are not happy with the performance, shoot me an email and I'll get it taken care of asap.

29 beaks are the same way. Mine runs a LH. I know of guys who tried RH on 29's only to have to drag the left tab to level out.
