View Full Version : handling question,,,

why is it that my boat will turn rather sharply to port at speeds but just seems to lay on its side and almost slide insted of cut and turn to starboard? I will slow way down and just about give up on the starboard turn. Sharp turn at speed, like speed over twenty or so. not sure if i am making sence here or not. Is it due to the rotation direction of the prop? It just doesnt seem like she will turn just lays over on the side. So i dont turn that way. Agin,,, i am talking about a reverse direction turn at speed over 20 or better.

Are both tabs up?

typical of right hand steer, right hand rotation props

Mine does the same thing but I usually have a little port tab down at lower speeds. I figured that was the reason.
