Re: Left handed or right handed max prop

I've taken my max prop apart so many times over the years that I should be able to tell you which way the blades turn. So it you can't determine the rotation of your shaft then look at the prop when completely feathered. The blades should have the curved part aft. Now turn the prop clockwise....I know that the blades rotate such that the curved parts are now forward.....and I have a right hand prop. I really can't remember how the blades rotate when I rotate counterclock wise but I would think those curve sections would be aft......Someone can correct me on this, but I'll be at the boat in the next 2 weeks and can give a definate answer if needed.
