Dave I believe an explanation is needed to your comment about Hunter boats having LH props. As you well know prop rotation is a fonction of the engine. All Hunters built with a Yanmar engine have RH props. Position of control lever (or levers if separate levers for transmission engagement and for fuel) has nothing to do with prop rotation unless the cables were reversed on a particular boat, which would mean going to a prop with the opposite rotation but would also mean that the transmission ratio would be changed. For example, my 3GM30F Yanmar with a Kanzaki KM3P tranny has a 2.61/1 ratio in FWD gear and roughly 1.95/1 in reverse. RH prop. If the cables were reversed, and a LH prop was installed, the FWD ratio would then be 1.95/1 in FWD gear, i.e. not as efficient.
