Re: Sail Drives, The Good, The Bad and Ugly

Have had Volvo-Penta saildrives on two different multihulls for about 9 years. I am now looking for a boat with shaft drives, as there were too many (expensive to fix) problems and also it required the boats to get out of the water too often, which is a problem (and yet another expense) in remote places.

Re: Sail Drives, The Good, The Bad and Ugly

I was taught to put my sail drives in reverse gear when engines are off and sailing.
Not sure "exactly" why but I am assuming it's to stop the props from rotating whilst sailing and therefore the whole gearbox internals creating more wear and tear
