    well punctuation would certainly help understand what you mean know what I mean counter rotating is the way to go here good luck and try some punctuation next time

    I'm glad I'm not the only one, thanks Tom.

    Your goals should define what you need. I'm a big twin outboard fan, particularly in longer craft, with firm directional stability. Nothing beats the maneuverability advantage of outboard twins.

    In short, no you don't need counter rotating props. A 23' 5" boat could benefit from both setups.
