Thanks BC. I wonder if this will be covered under warranty. It seems some are and some arenít.

Decided to anchor as the assigned berth was another tight spot.. thought it may be something binding the prop so dived on it and had a look.. no line snagged and it opens and folds no problem.
Next I opened the engine bay and got my crew to operate the fwd-reverse with engine off.. the lever moved as it should.. next I started the engine and she put it in reverse.. it tried but kept slipping in and out.. you could hear it.
Now it operated fine in Florida leaving the marina and we've put 140+hrs on each engine during the crossing.. its works fine in forwards just will not lock into reverse.. oil levels good.. no strange noises from the transmission except when one tries reverse..
Any ideas you Lagoon/saildrive boat owners.. both Dave and myself would appreciate a diagnosis..

PS: Asked the marina engineer to take a look but he'll not go onto the water.. boats must be alongside..
before suspecting the clutch cones.

check the adjustment of the morse control cable to the gear lever arm on the gearbox,it may be that the terminal at the gear box end of the cable was never properly adjusted for it to fully engage reverse.

it might need the split pin removing and locknut loosening then a few turns of the terminal end at the end of the morse cable where it attaches to the gear leaver on the gearbox .

you can also check function by hand of fwd and rev with the cable terminal end disconnected and engine running in idle,if it still slips then it is the cones.

Yanmar service bulletin gives some advise on adjusting the shift cable which might help.

Re: Just signed on a new 450s!

Hi all,

So Boatman61 has arrived safely in Gibraltar. An epic job done by Phil and his wife, THANK YOU guys.

The Yanmar dealer in Gib has been onboard and done a temporary fix to get the stbd sail drive to stay in gear, Iím not there but I think the issue is indeed cables and not gear box which is a major result. Heís going to fix it properly next week so I will update when I have full details.

Also while the boat is in Gib our electricians are going to add the 2nd cable to the inverter as per earlier posts. Maybe we will even get the bane of my life, the Victron battery monitor working!
