RH to LH prop rotation

I'm re-powering my Morgan 462. The original Perkins engines had a RH rotation. My replacement engine of choice is the Yanmar 4JH4_HTE which has a LH rotation.
Anyone see any issues with this???

It will cost you a new prop.

Exactly right....I repowered this past summer from an engine with LH rotation to one with RH rotation....Just required a new prop.

Now the prop walk when in reverse takes me to port right into my finger pier instead of my neighbors boat.
