Default Which Way To Spin Props

This may be a stupid question, but is there a correct way to spin props on a dual engine set up. I was told spin them in by one person and then I read here in a post to spin them out. Does it depend on the hull? Can it be either way? Help

The best answer will come from Eliminator. Depends on the hull power and drives. My 525 36 Nor-Tech with 5's spun the props out and was dangerous to drive with them spinning in. My current 700 NXT boat spins them in. Love your new ride by the way!!!!

Mine is inward rotation. Never tried out, but it is safe to say that DCB did.

Thanks! Can't wait to get out there this weekend. What boat are your 700's in and how does it perform? Dan

2008 36 Nor-Tech Supercat. The thing about boats is that no matter how fast it goes you always want more. The boat rides and handles great. Top speed is a little over 120

I looked at the 36 Nor-Tech and thought it would make a great boat for us. Have the 700's been good to you? I would love to see some pictures of your boat. I could not find the right Nor-Tech to buy or I might have one now instead of the Elim. Dan

I have mine spinning in. Some say on certian hulls spinning out allows for better maneuvering around the docks.

It sounds like there is no right or wrong way. I guess you try both ways and see which you like?

Its not what you like Its what the boat wants and driveability , spin them out on that 36 and she may feel like your azz is sliding across ICE
