    On most boats in the 20 foot range, what degree from center do most stern drives turn,(example 20 degrees from center 40 degrees from one side to the other)?

    thanks

    Merc Alphas and Bravos have 56 degrees of travel, stop-to-stop (28 degrees to either side). This is fairly typical for sterndrive installations.
