WARNING: As of 23, September 2014 Raboesch decided to change both their code numbers and the way they describe the rotation of their props.
If you have purchased props in the past DO NOT use either the old code numbers or previous descriptions of prop rotation, as you won't get the prop you think you are ordering.
To avoid confusion we have changed the way we describe rotation for ALL makes of props we sell, so there is a consistent standard across all ranges
The current description now used is, if you stand at the STERN of the boat looking forward towards the BOW, a Right Hand or Clockwise rotation prop will push the boat forward.
