Current propeller rotation is outboard, per Dale Rayzor.

Hi Matt, interesting. Just saw from the photos in your article they were still spinning inward, as they were when I built it. Maybe they've learn something new! Good for them, if so. Also noticed a deeper spacer. Best wishes to everyone!

look at the pic at the very bottom of the article. The props are spinning out. Yes there is a pic of the slide show spinning in. But the pic at the ramp they are going out.

on another note, the transom doesn’t look any different from when you had it. I must be missing something

Ugh.... no wonder SO MANY spots were missed when you washed that thing for me a decade ago in Havasu!!! Blind as a bat boat detailer..... pfft!!! LOL

Now... talking out of the other side of my mouth - I didn't look at the props on the ramp pic. So, proceed in picking up a rock and humming it back at me. :-) I can't imagine keeping the nose planted with less horse power and spinning out??? But, "prop science" is a black box. Good for them figuring something out that works (Two thumbs up)!!!

* Look at the exhaust height. X is lower now than when I had the 1075's in it.... Grab handles are missing on the under-side of the bustle... and it has a deeper drive spacer (which is VERY interesting to me... as that usually means the nose should run more bow-proud (spinning outboard)??? But, what do I know????).
