Re: prop suddenly turning

Hi Miles,

We have the same sign on Cream Puff. There was a conversation previously
about which gear to leave the vessel in when underway and Oliver confirmed
Amels are fitted with varying setups and some are to be in forward and some
reverse.

I do know it is not good to have the prop spin while in gear underway with
the engine stopped. I have only one thought. Is the prop clean and able to
fold. If the prop is not feathering, this would add pressure to turn. Let's
hope it is this simple.


With best regards,

Mark
