    E36c engine angle

    The Bukh 20 seems to be mounted at an angle and I am assuming this was done to offset prop walk. Manual says itís shaft rotation is counterclockwise as viewed facing forward. The prop is a 16x11 LH.
    If I am wrong on my assumption please tell me why engine is installed at an angle.
    my daughters E36c.

    Right to left

    I'm assuming that you mean that the engine is angled to the right or left of the centerline of the boat. Again I assume that the shaft log and strut are also angled. Sometimes that was done so that the prop shaft could be removed from the vessel without dropping the rudder. Minimal to no effect on prop walk.
