Yanmar Diesel

Yanmar or any diesel fitted with saildrives and generally with dog clutch...The question is who when sailing normally select reverse or forward or neutral when the engine is shut down. Just as an introduction to the question I select reverse so that the clutch is engaged, the engine prevents propellor rotation and therefore saildrive wear and also less propellor drag...the reasoning being that a rotating propellor causes more drag than a staionary one.
This is my theory anyway...does anyone do anything different ?

forward

I normally leave mine in forward gear simply for the reason that I forget to disengage the tranny.

I always leave mine in reverse for no reason other than the growling of the transmission turning drives me crazy.
