Best Position Of Engine After Use?

Hi everyone

Does anyone know which is the best position for the engine after use? Does it matter if the propeller is tilted off the seawater or not? Is there a difference with leaving it submerged?

Either with the engine fully tilted so the whole gearcase doesn't touch the water, or if it won't tilt that far then it needs to be far enough in the water for the anode to be submerged permamnently.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
