Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Re: Hurth Transmissions freewheeling folding prop

smiles bernard

I have yet to test out my maramu prop shaft alternator. I’m hoping to this week though. 
Am I right in assuming I put the gear into neutral to allow the prop to freewheel then switch on the alternator charging ?
Simple as that?
To stop just engage the gear to stop the prop from turning then turn off the alternator?
Many thanks in advance

I didn’t know it was continued into the earlier SMs. I am quite happy with a bit of drag to get all the amps back in the batteries under sail..
I have about the same engine hours as you.
