General advice for a fixed prop is to keep the gear box in reverse, with the engine off, to keep the prop from moving. However, I always thought that was to keep it from cranking the transmission if being pushed by the slip stream, not necessarily a drag reducer.
For a feathering prop, keeping it in neutral allows the prop to feather, even though you might first stop it with reverse.

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