No, but it is possible, and has been done a few times. It is not worth it, and makes the hull harder to drive.

Thanks for the input. I thought it might make the boat turn both ways the same.

I'm not fully familiar with the blackjack 29, but I have a mystic 29 which is the same hull... Your hull should turn both ways just fine. If it's not, then something is wrong with the trim, or the COG is way off.

I am new to boating and I read that this boat doesn't turn the same in both directions. I live in Ohio so as soon as the lake at the end of my street is liquid again I will be putting the boat in the water for the first time . I thought I would do the modification nowbut from what I am being told I will just run the boat as it is and have some fun.... THANKS

The boat will turn a lot better to the right, that's what they are designed for. It can turn to the left but will require more effort and not as sharp.

Wink boat turning

if you are going to do a lot of left hand turns be sure to note where the water pick up is. As if it is in the side of the rudder it can cause the motor to over heat. if it is in the bottom your probably ok.

The water inlet on the "pro boat" rudder is open/picks up on both sides.

you can easily put a rudder on the left side port... it will help your turning.. you dont have to worry about loosing water flow turning that way...I think you could buy another complete rubber with mount and flip it upside down with minimal mods...

your black jack will turn both ways like its on rails, no need for the extra weight, and dont run it on 6 cells, it will get to hot
