Last year I had the unhappy experience of reversing over my dinghy tow line. I''m told that everyone does it once....or were people just being nice?

Sounds like someone should get down in the engine compartment and see if the transmission is turning when put in gear.
If the shaft coming out of the transmission is not turning then you might want to call a professional.
