With the transmission on the PS boats you need to leave it out of gear while sailing. So part of the question is once it is vertical in line with the skeg, will it stay that way with the transmission disengaged. The other part is how do you get it vertical in the first place. Seems like taking it out of gear at exactly the right moment would be a low probability exercise, but I have not tried so maybe it is easier than I think.

I was hoping the anwer would be that with the transmission diengaged it will automatically line up with the skeg and stay that way.
