Isn't ZF the former Hurth?.. the main caution in the manual said (Hurth) not to let the transmission freewheel in forward gear without the engine running.

We've had the Hurth/ZF in our last two boats and always have left it in reverse although now with a Max prop, once the prop's feathered I suppose it wouldn't matter.
