Prop Rotation
« on: March 01, 2009, 09:22:52 PM »

I know this subject has been brought up before, but I just want to clarify something. In this picture of the Cory Environmental Tug Regain are both props rotating inwards?
When I build this tug I want to make sure I get it right

Hi NO they rotate outward from the top in that I say the PORT prop turns ANTI clock  Looking from stern of vessel
The STBD prop therefore turns clockwize again looking from the stern as in your picture

I can not tell you that as I did not take the picture, it was given to me by the Marine Superintendent of Cory Environmental
