Can i run my Volvo on reverse all season?
Just installed a Maxprop on my boat and now i am moving astern when i put the engine ahead. I have an older model 2 cyl Volvo and i know it is turning right handed (engine ahead clockwise when viewed from astern). I followed the ''right turning'' table from the maxprop manual for the pitch settings, i can see my shaft turning clockwise and i am moving astern so the error must be in the maxprop manual. My question is do i have to haul the boat out and reverse the pitch on the propeller or can i cruise with the engine moving astern for the whole season? Engine model 2000 2 cyl, year 1989.
