Don't know why, but they just do.

Mine does the same thing. Always has and always will. It is just the nature of the beast. Just make sure that the transmission fluid level is where it should be and you should be good to go. By the way, every inboard I have been in has sounded different when put in reverse.:)

I think every boat does. Mine does as well as my bud's old Malibu. It's normal.

Why? I dunno. Just 'cuz yer makin' the gears go opposite to what they are supposed ta, I guess.:confused: I never really thought about it.
