Lost Reverse... forward is fine.

Had the boat out all day without an issue. After it had sat for awhile, I jumped in again, untied it from the dock and backed out... reverse worked fine. Ran around the lake a few times, then headed in. As I approached the dock, I clicked it into reverse to maintain speed and swing the nose a bit... but nothing. It revved fine, but reverse would not engage. Forward was fine, but no reverse.

Once I was tied up safely, I disconnected the cable from the tranny, started it, and attempted to engage reverse manually, but still nothing. Any ideas?

The boat is a 1986 Ford PCM 19 foot Skier. I do not know which tranny it has... where would I look or how can I tell?
