Re: Prop Shaft Offset

Seems odd that they'd change it twice during a production run... Any chance Hull 68 was facing aft and got confused (no offense)

Was a repropping part of the repower?.. Also I suppose that if the new shaft rotation is opposite, and it works 'with' the offset rather than 'against' that might increase the effect?

Love for Bob Perry to weigh in on the reasons/rationale for offset shafts.. as he did himself with the Mirage...
