Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

There is another Yanmar bulletin that s more detailed and states that if you have a folding or feathering prop reverse is OK. Fixed prop must be in neutral.

Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

There is no way I could listen to the prop spinning every time I go sailing.

It would drive you nuts.

With my old Volvo MD17C, I just put the transmission in reverse and leave it that way.

Ours is barely audible and you have to listen very, very carefully for it. We have a computer fan that circulates air in the icebox that is louder than our prop spinning. To hear that you need to pretty much put your head on the counter.... Perhaps it is the gear box that noisy? Ours is pretty much silent..

Do you have the number of that advisory (or even better a copy of it). Were told by Yanmar DK that reverse was not allowed even with folding propellers.

Thanks

My two-blade prop would be very noisy if it were spinning.
I would not be able to tolerate it for long.
