    In single engine installitions Right hand rotation are almost always used.
    When a boat is equipped with dual engines counter rotating propellers are preffered. This balances any steering pull when the outboards or drives are trimmed evenly. Many twin engine boats use propellers of the same rotation. The disadvantages are that steering Torque is Greater when trimmed will in or well out.
