JDCAVE,
Could it be that you've got your engine idle speed too low?
I adjust mine so the engine won't quit when I come back of reverse backing out of a slip after the engine was cold only 3 or 4 minutes before. Haven't had a stall since I did that.

Many overpropped boats go too fast at idle but as long as the shifting is done quickly doing lots of shifting won't harm a transmission. Don't think there's any benifit from ultra low idle speeds.
