Re: Charging batteries with engine while sailing
Secondly, Yanmars are not supposed to be left in the neutral position when sailing allowing the prop to spin. It can damage the transmission. Not sure what engine he had by when sailing my engine lever is in reverse.
Actually Yanmar states the transmission should be left in neutral when sailing.
See this Yanmar service bulletin:http://www.catamaransite.com/files/Y...al_Sailing.pdf
