RH prop

sweeeet:)devil forgive the stupid newbie question, but what's the reasoning for driving off the snout of the crank?
The prop turns to the right and assists the boat through the left turn of circle racing. If the prop turned left, it would try to keep the ass end from coming around. By turning right, the prop actually helps the boat get through the turn.........MP

Sweet looking boat for sure. But, I always thought the real advantage was turning the prop right lifted the right side of the boat which helped keep it from flipping going around the left turn. As opposed to lifting the left side that would already be lifting in a left turn usually resulting in rolling the boat. We learn something new every day.

Thanks for all the kind words. This would not of been made possible if not for all the time and effort put in by Rick "Nutts-a-Hangin' King. His attention to detail is 2nd to none. He made sure no bolt was left unturned. And to watch him wack the throttle and and his face light up was worth all of it. He just kept smilin' and wackin', smilin' and wackin' (have fun guys :)grn:)grn). I know it will be a hand full but I can't wait to feel the power again. See you all out there!!!

Beautiful!

Wow! What a beautiful K! Can't wait to see it run. Is that a early 60's Corvette drag car in the garage? (Sorry for jacking the thread, I just love Chevys)
