It would drive you nuts.

With my old Volvo MD17C, I just put the transmission in reverse and leave it that way.

Ours is barely audible and you have to listen very, very carefully for it. We have a computer fan that circulates air in the icebox that is louder than our prop spinning. To hear that you need to pretty much put your head on the counter.... Perhaps it is the gear box that noisy? Ours is pretty much silent..
