I'm afraid I have the same problem...
The drive will not engage forward unles I detach the wire and move the gear
leaver on the sail drive manually.
According to the operato's maintenance
manual (page 21 http://www.allpa.nl/media/files/manu...20DRIVE%20.pdf
) there are supposed to be 35mm of movment between neutral and forward gear. Measuring this on my drive there seams to be over 50mm movment needed to put the saildrive in gear...
Do you think this is the same problem?
Do you have any ide of where to buy these parts
Do you know where to order new sink-anodes?
I would be really greatfull for any help, we are planing on sailing from Tromsø to panema in 40 days...
