Re: Sailing ... transmission in reverse?

The spinning prop will drive you crazy. I put it in reverse while sailing, then put the boat in irons to slow it down and get it into to neutral before I crank the engine. It slides right in if there's no pressure. I think the problem comes when trying to force it out of gear. I have a Yanmar 3GM30. Anyway, as you'll see,the advice on this seems to be all over board....
