Max-Prop with Yanmar saildrive

Hi All,

I have a Yanmar saildrive with a 2 blade Max Prop. I am not sure after I put the sails up and turn engine off whether to leave the boat in forward, neutral or reverse. PYI didn't have a definitive answer and my engine/saildrive manual doesn't have anything to say about a feathering prop. I want to make sure the prop feathers for maximum efficiency when sailing. Prop is in good shape and lubed, diver says it's just fine.

Any thoughts?

Thank you
michael

With a feathering prop, you don't want the shaft to be spinning. For most transmissions, this means being in reverse.

To feather the propeller, kill the engine in Forward or Neutral. Once the engine is dead, engage the transmission in reverse. This will lock up the shaft and make the propeller feather immediately.

Cheers,
