Should transmission be in gear when sailing?
I''am not Totally sure but I went to a Yammar class and they suggest putting the trans in reverse because, the rear output bearing is not lubed unless the motor is running and the trans in gear, putting the trans in reverse while really sailing keeps the shaft from turning and therefore prevents the bearing from rotating unlubed.Thus saving you Big bucks by not having to overhaul the transmission.
