I have a Variprop 4 blade thats slightly over pitched (only gets to 2900 of a max 3200)
I've run it this way for a couple of years but I'm beginning to think that I'm not doing myself any favors here. So I want to adjust accordingly. Now the Yanmar specs say the rotation is counter clockwise when viewed from the stern. So is that a Left hand prop rotation?

I looked t the spec.. it says the engine is counterclockwise (left hand) .. the gearbox normally reverses direction so the prop should be right hand..

Thanks for the help. The gearbox is a Kanzaki KM4A2 So based on your comment I looked up the specs on this to be sure it did indeed reverse and it does. I didn't know they did that. Thank again
