  • With Counter Rotating Torpedo Blades which turn in Which Direction

    I was wondering about a project of mine. If you look from the Rear ( Stern ) forward at the turning props, which is turning in which direction, from the closest to the body to the outer one?
    Need your advice.

    The leading edge tilts to the direction it turns.
    So the front blade leading edge tilts right - turns right.
    The rear blade leading edge tilts left - turns left.
