When we had the second turbine (on the port side) it exhausted, of course, on the port side of the paddlewheel. Chief Pfleider favored the stbd. turbine, as the oppposite watch would run the port. We still have that turbine (mostly assembled) in storage, along with nearly enough spare parts to build another. In fact, I pulled the voltage regulator from it last season to keep the stbd. turbine running.
