I have Hurth transmission that takes ATF. I change the ATF every 100 hrs or 1 year, which ever comes first. My Hurth manual says I can lock it in reverse while sailing or leave it in neutral to free wheel, either way is fine according to the manual. I usually leave the transmission in neutral while sailing, so I don't have to remember to put it into neutral to start the engine.
