Bukh DV20 saildrive clutch

I have a Bukh saildrive behind a DV20 which seems to be slipping when in reverse.

I have a fixed 3 blade prop and in forward the engine maxes out at 2600 rpm with boat at 6.5knts. In reverse engine maxes out at 2900 rpm with boat at about 1.8knts. Boat takes a long time to stop or to build speed in reverse.

I suspect that I have a slipping reverse clutch in the saildrive.

Does anyone know if the clutches in the Bukh saildrives can be serviced in place, or will the saildrive need to be removed from the boat?

Any insights greatly appreciated.

Have done that job myself. You need to have the boat out of the water for to split the gearbox from the shaft.
