    Thanks for the info. Now I can start looking for the right sort of prop. Just need to sort out size, number of blades and pitch!

    The down side of prop rotation is that the Europeans use one method of defining it and the Americans use another - and they are contradictory. From the Prop-Shop site

    "Please note that propeller rotation is based on the British and American standard (viewing the boat from the stern) which is the opposite to that in Germany."

    Hi Ian
    Viewed from the rear yes and anticlockwise is LH as you though.

    Mine pictured with outboard rotating LH RH props https://photos.smugmug.com/photos/i-H76VTgD/0/b34b90d1/X2/i-...

    I'm just starting to try to "tune" my boat by playing about with propellers but I've hit a real newbie question: When suppliers talk about a prop being right- or left- handed (presumably that it is designed to spin clockwise/anticlockwise) are they talking about the view of the prop from the front or rear of the boat? Viewed from the rear, I need a prop that spins anti-clockwise - so is that LH? (or is it RH?)

    Thanks for not laughing (too much)!
    Ian
