Default Can you run brushless motors in reverse?

I hope this doesnt sound like a stupid question but, Im installing 2 burshless motor in my boat and I need one of the to spin in reverse. Because its a dual drive, each propller spining the opposite of each other. Is it ok for the motor to spin in reverse to full throttle for the rest of the boats life/electronics? How would i wire it just reverse the 2 outside wires going to the motor?
Thanks Rob

Yes, that shouldn't be any problem. To reverse a brushless, reverse(swap) any two wires, it doesn't matter which ones.
