Boat listing / Prop rotation / Helmside

Post by kens »

A recent post by a builder brought up the paragraph in the inboard installation book about prop rotation and helm placement causing listing.
I don't think it matters, but, its in the book.
If it does matter, to which boats does it matter.??
I have a center console, R/H prop, and no list. 112hp 2:1 gear, 16x16 wheel
If the helm side does matter, then with 1 passenger you should get a list, correct?
Other members please come in and say your prop rotation, helmside, how much power you got, gear ratio, and list or no list.
List or no list?
Oak..........the juice ain't worth the squeeze :D :shock: :o :)
