Post by Aeon »

I've watched the it three times and I hope it an optical illusion but the prop is spinning backwards! :dontknow: The leading edges are going down I hope I'm wrong on this one! :florida:

I thought the same thing. It has to be an illusion because the belt drive would be LHR not RHR and you can hear the wind in the mic when he walks behind the boat.

its the camera. watch some videos and notice the props they sometimes go backward or look stopped. its the shutter speed of the camera and speed of the prop.....

I'm glad it was an optical illusion, good luck with your new boat. I did have a friend put a wood prop on backwards I was kind of funny when he fired it up. Hope you post a video of it when you put it in the water that thing should be a beast! :florida:
