Oceanis 45 saildrive questions


I am new to this forum, and I am not sure if this question was already asked, but I could not find it with Google nor forum search, so here it goes:

My new Oceanis 45 with Yanmar saildrive with fixed prop
is making rather loud whining noise from saildrive housing
when sailing with the gearbox is shifted to neutral (per SD manual).
Is this normal? Should I be concerned?

I am actually thinking about upgrading my fixed prop to maxprop,
but I think I need to diagnose the noise problem first.
Do you have any suggestions about the size and type of the
maxprop if I will finally go this route?
