Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

My two-blade prop would be very noisy if it were spinning.
I would not be able to tolerate it for long.

Do you have the number of that advisory (or even better a copy of it). Were told by Yanmar DK that reverse was not allowed even with folding propellers.

Thanks

It would drive you nuts.

With my old Volvo MD17C, I just put the transmission in reverse and leave it that way.

Ours is barely audible and you have to listen very, very carefully for it. We have a computer fan that circulates air in the icebox that is louder than our prop spinning. To hear that you need to pretty much put your head on the counter.... Perhaps it is the gear box that noisy? Ours is pretty much silent..

Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

The best solution to this may be some sort of shaft brake that automatically releases when the motor is running and put into gear. I agree that any parts: seals, gears, cutlass bearings, etc. that constantly turn for no good reason will experience wear. That's obvious. There is friction and friction = wear. The engineering of these marine engines IMO is inadequate in this respect. It's like designing a car with no "Park" on an automatic transmission.

Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

My next question is ... how to best get my 2 blade Martec prop to close and stay closed? SOP for racing is to rotate the prop shaft to the correct the position to close the Martec blades and lock the trans into reverse.

Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

Is this true for the Kanzaki Hurth Transmissions that use ATF? My understanding was that these transmissions were to remain in reverse while sailing.

Re: Yanmar while sailing, reverse or neutral?

My understanding is that the metallic cone clutches which can bind tightly when sailing in gear, were being damaged by people forcing them into neutral to start. While it does "bother" me a little to hear the gear spinning, I'm getting used to it.

You could put it in reverse momentarily to feather the prop.. then in neutral afterwards and nothing should turn.
