put it in gear and turn the prop by hand, then wedge a lump of wood between the prop and housing and try to turn the flywheel, you shouldn't be able to turn the flywheel i'm more inboard than out board but i know on some engines that the input shaft has a friction welded joint, i'm wondering if this is the case with yours and it's parted, you've going to have to take the gearbox off i fear to find out what this other guy has done

just mention that getting it in reverse is also a trouble - only 1 on the 5 times it goes in.

there's no way once it's in gear that it can slip as regards the gearbox, if you cant get reverse this sounds like another problem, i think it's time to take it back and complain

Another example of a shite marine mechanic. How could any "professional" consider changing the impellor on an engine without running it up to check everything is working.

There really is only one option if you want the job done right.... DIY

tested today, I can turn the prop with very little resistance while the lever is in WOT position... not normal I think so
In reverse, I cannot turn the prop.
In neutral, it spins around, OK

is it normal that you cannot turn the drive shaft by hand?

I have a thought that the clutch or the clutch springs are end of life...

It doesn't have clutch in that sense. It's a dog clutch.

It may be that it's not going into gear at all?

Not throttle cable, gear cable. However, if it is the problem, you'd hear some nasty grinding noises from the gearbox...
