Whether to leave shifter in neutral or not may depend on the advice of the engine manufacturer. The latest from Yanmar is to leave in neutral.

I used to leave a Westerbeke in reverse, and the MaxProp never seemed to mind.

That's what I would think. The only caveat is that one actually gets it to feather first.
