Hi Savage,

I can't get your link to work...

A single shaft boat will always have a favourite direction of turning well, with a counterclockwise turning prop (seen from the rear) this is the right hand turn.

This is a result of the propwalk.
Left hand turns need to be wide and when it has to be a narrow turn, throttle down first, so there's more hull in the water.

Generally, left hand turns at speed are not done, when your boat runs over 30 mph.

Regards, Jan.
