Re: Oceanis 45 saildrive questions

The noise is typical. The prop is continuing to spin from the movement of the boat. As was mentioned by 'kellysails' above I shift into reverse, this was shown to me by the dealer captain. I myself am looking at an Autoprop. I've been told Maxprops that have been in use for a few years are now having to be rebuilt because the gears are wearing out. You should also consider Autostream, they have Stainless Steel gears and are apparently easier to adjust.
