Prop rotating in neutral

I was flushing my engine yesterday and noticed my prop was just slightly turning. It was well under 1 rpm and not constant. It would move a few degrees and then stop. The transmission fluid looks good. Is this amount of movement normal in neutral or am I going to become very familiar with the internalls of a transmission soon?

The transmission shifts smooth on the water and I haven't noticed it not coming out of gear.

It is the 1:1 transmission in a 2000 PS 205 with 840 hrs if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance

Bill

They do that, no cause for concern. Cars and motorcycles will do the same if the wheels are off the ground and reved up in neutral.
