Re: Yanmar Transmission Clutch Problem

The referenced Yanmar tech bulletin says to leave the transmission in neutral during sailing, but that the shaft can be locked (with an add-on device) if the user doesn't like the prop rotation noise.

Question: what does prop rotation noise sound like? I get a faint squeal or whine (a little like a bad bearing) from my transmission when under sail in neutral. Is that sort of noise normal?
