My 2150 capri has a 280 drive. Is the prop L or R rotation? I heard that on the 280 drive you can use either one. I want to buy an extra prop and do not know if to get a R hand or L Hand prop. Right now I have an SS 15 X17. Thanks

There should be an L or R stamped on the prop with the size. I'm thinking it's likely a right hand rotation, but it could have been changed along the way.

A single engine boat with the Volvo Penta 280 will swing a LH propeller.
A Starboard engine 280 will swing a RH propeller.
