Finally brought my 1973 45' CC Irwin
up to Eureka from down south over the weekend but discovered, the next morning, that my transmission
decided to act up. I have an old Perkins
4-108 with a Hurth transmission
. Not being really mechanically minded (I'm learning
but the curve hasn't been too steep yet), I let my sailing buddy try to figure it out (checked linkages etc) to no avail. She won't go into forward or reverse (but does neutral really well. Also, when the shaft was manually turned she would engage forward but reverse was out of the question. As I live up northern way, I had to leave her in Eureka for now. Was hoping to get some recommendations for a "reasonably" priced, capable mechanic
to call in or around Eureka and see regarding the problem (also might get some electrical
work done at the same time. Thanks!
