Same here Miles,

On NIKIMAT SM2K #289, equipped with the Auto Prop H6, there was a plate near the throttle installed by Amel saying while sailing, engine stop, push the throttle in forward gear.

Sincerely, Alexandre

Hi bill,  You know a lot of things and
I have learned from you, but this time I will disagree.
    My boat came from Amel with
the Autoprop and with specific instructions to always put
the gear in forward when sailing.  This locks the
propeller.  If the transmission is in neutral, the
propeller spins backwards—fast.  The effect of then
moving it into forward is to put a strain on the
transmission clutches that will hurt them.  The procedure
that I was told is to leave the transmission in forward when
stopping the engine and sailing, and to start the engine in
forward if the boat is moving forward, i.e. to never take it
out of gear when moving forward.     This may be unique
instruction for the Autoprop, but it was the instruction
that came with my boat.  I remember being surprised because
in previous boats, I had always been told to keep the
transmission in reverse.   Amel said to not do this
because the propeller spins in reverse when the boat is
moving forward.
