OK, after spending 10 minutes searching to prove you wrong, I'll have to admit defeat. Wikipedia has an excellent article on "Propeller Walk".

That is a very interesting article. I can't wait to get back on the water and do some playing around regarding what is said about going into reverse.

Finally, when moving ahead with the propeller moving astern, flow into and around the propeller is very confused. Generally the overall result for a single screw ship when stopping is a shear to starboard, but this is not always guaranteed; sometimes it may go the other way, depending often on any yaw rate on the vessel when the propeller starts to turn astern.

I have a 98 Maristar 200 VRS that I just bought used. I thought the same thing is it suppose to be offset.. But I do have a problem wondering if anyone may have a suggestion. When you turn to the left at skiing speed it is hard to turn the wheel back to neutral. What could be the problem?

Most likely not an issue. Does it move freely, left and right while not underway? You would have to define "hard". For me it does take some effort (I'm not saying struggling but definately more effort than at zero speed) to right the boat back to straight.

Also try Google search using
steering stiff site:mastercraft.com/teamtalk

and you will find lots of information on this. Has the boat been maintained somewhere that you can confirm that the rudder box and steering cable have been maintained (greased)? Otherwise might be a good idea to do these things anyways.

Also best to open a new thread with a title that is related to your topic. You will have better success with responses. That being said I think you will find the information needed using the google search I recommended earlier.

It does work easy while at rest and at low speed. This is a 4 blade prop and maybe prop torque have something to do with it? Turning right at speed and straight inv it out is much easier...
