That one pic makes it look like the steering wheel is on the Left side!

Interesting...............I've never understood why the helm was on the right side of the boat........in  the USA, that is.

Right side steering traces back to two things. Before motors, the steering oar was on the right, and boats moored with the dock to the left (where the term "port" originates. Later, as motors were used, having the extra weight on the right to counter the effect of a clockwise rotating prop worked best.

I have a 2005 triton aluminum boat. It's a 1652. I have a 90hp 2 stroke. With a 13-1/8 diameter, 19 pitch Michigan wheel apollo prop stainless steel. I have my motor all the way up and it bounces a little, but I'm only running 40mph, I have friends with identical set ups, running 50-53. Any opinions?
