Not quite that but I find mine get stuck in forward a bit – called sea start once who advised me to hit the mechanism under the floor boards (where both sets of controls combine) as there can be rust there.  I keep this part clean and then well greased now.

As part of my engine checks prior to departure I now always try forward and reverse as well as the bowthruster to make sure all is in order.
I know it is some distance from Lymington – but I only ever let Gosport Boatyard do anything on my engine.  I once used someone else and they put the wrongly rated cold water pump on the engine.  All my hoses blew in the shipping channel off Cowes, and then again off Portland Bill !
