Bill,

For some reason I did not get notified of other replies to this thread, so I just happened to check...

Sorry about the turbo. Our port engine had a turbo bearing/seal rebuild just before we bought her and the seal on the intake air side failed pretty quickly, leaking lots of oil into the intake manifold. Stuart Yachts owned up and sent me a brand new turbo, which is a bit of a pain to install, but not too bad. So, I would really beware a rebuild.

As to the engine controls, my flybridge controls DO NOT give me a neutral option, but the lower helm does. As was stated, pull the lever directly out to the side and then move it for higher engine speeds while the transmission is disconnected.

Too bad the Bahamas cruise is postponed, but as Terry pointed out, you don't want to have to deal with any significant problems over there. Best of luck!
