It sounds as though there is no power being transmitted to the propeller.
Firstly check that the lever on the gearbox moves when the morse control is used to select forward or reverse, it might be that the cable has broken.
If your gearbox is low on oil the mechanism will not actuate to engage the drive (the shaft will turn slowly due to friction). The solution is to top up the gearbox oil, however if it has plenty of oil and still does not operate it will be a problem with the internal clutches, or the adjustment.
