Re: Prop Shaft Offset

Thanks (as always) Faster, that answers my question.

Yes, that appears to be the case - that two boats have "opposite" offsets - thus we are all puzzled. We currently have 3 datapoints which appear to contradict each other hull#42 reports port, #68 starboard, #212 port. Gotta be a mistake somewhere. Other folk are intending to check their offset as access allows.

Hull #68 is having serious propwalk problems since their repower, we're trying to work out why.

One possibility that Gasoline was standard, diesel optional; I wonder is they had different offsets for different engines? The Atomic 4 boat uses RH props, and diesels tend to be LH...

(The P323 (as I am sure you know) has a skeg mounted rudder, thus the offset)

Thanks again!
