    23 Eliminator Daytona - props spinning same direction?

    Because of the diminishing availability of counter rotating drives and parts the cheap answer would be to run 2 standard rotation lowers. In this case, they are 2000 Johnson 225s. Any ideas how negative the effects will be? Slight or forget about it? Thanks in advance for your input. PaulO

    Hard left turns are sure to add some excitement to your day. What you could potentially spend repairing your boat, self, and passengers is a lot more then the cost of setting it up correctly-find a counter rotater.

    Another negative other than stated above of running two standard rotation is that at high speed you will start to "crab walk" the boat to the starboard....that makes straight runs a little scary

    I thought it was a bad idea. Thanks for confirming. Definitely will not do this. PaulO
