Without knowing which..

Without knowing which tranny you have it's tough to say forward or reverse.

Many marine transmissions are to be left in reverse to stop the prop including Yanmar and Hurth/ZF as used by manufacturers such as Universal/Westerbeke. On some transmissions leaving it in forward can actually damage the unit not help it.. When in doubt leave it in neutral..
