Outboard prop is always spinning. It that bad?
I have 2002 9.9 4 stroke Merc that hangs off the back. When I'm loaded with crew, and the engine is off and in the up position, the skeg and prop still drag in the water, causing the prop to turn at a fairly high rate of speed. I'm looking into a new bracket system, but I'm worried for now that the turning prop might be damaging the impeller or other internal mechanisms. Should I worry?
