In boat applications usually reverse and park are blocked out.

Sell the trans brake v-body as suggested. Buy or build the needed v-body. It is safer and better.

the v-body you have is called a no button back up trans brake. They generally are slower release of the trans brake than a fluid release pro-tree v-body

Main line pressure is controlled via PR spring and the size of the boost valve in the v-body too
Dont worry how old you are... it is the mileage on your body that adds up.
