Its been a while since i have been on here but we are gearing up for a great season and i look forward to visiting this forum and silently learning!

I have a 42 foot gibson lazy cruz with a volvo penta outdrive. I have noticed that the outdrive has begun to flip up in reverse. I know the marina will have to pull the boat out of the water etc. my question is, does it hurt to use it like is? I had the boat out late last summer and everything went fine. When docking, it was probably the smoothest docking i had ever done. After seeing video and pictures from the outing, i noticed the foot was flipping up anytime i would reverse.

Wife and i are planning a weekend away from dock for anniversary this weekend and want opinions from you pros on any damage it may cause to use the boat as is.
