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.

Certified...in several regards...

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

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
