I am having problems shifting from reverse (engine off) into neutral, prior to starting the engine
I sail with the gearbox
in reverse, which feathers the prop. Before starting the engine
, I move the shift lever to its neutral position then start the engine.
It seems very reluctant to come out of reverse, I am careful not to apply excessive force to the shift lever.
If I heave-to, I am able to engage neutral, just like 'normal'.
So far there have not been any issues with the reverse to neutral shift with the engine running - this only occurs engine off, while sailing.
Any ideas on what I could do to fix this problem? Your thoughts and comments appreciated!
