Question Westerbeke Oil Change

I've done a search but I can't seem to find an answer. Simple question though, which way does the oil filter thread off? Is it a reverse thread? I went to do a change this weekend, got all the oil pumped out, but the filter wouldn't budge. I didn't want to force one way or the other until I was sure which way I should force. On top of the usual ZERO room to do anything

Anyone with a Westerbeke and some experience know what what I should be twisting to get the beast off. I've got a 85' 10-Two, but I'm hoping Westerbeke threads standard across the board.........

Thanks guys!
