Sailing in gear or in neutral?

It depends upon the transmission. Some transmissions should never, without the engine running, be in the same gear as the movement of the boat. My boat has a Hurth transmission and when sailing the transmission may be in neutal,the prop freewheels, or in reverse,which locks the prop, but it should never be in forward.
