How to rebuild a transmission

During the passage to Zihuatanejo back in April, our transmission took its last breaths. Once we had sailed onto anchor, recovered from the passage, and had a beer or two, we set off in search of a mechanic that could diagnose and potentially fix this somewhat important piece of gear. We soon found Filipe and Diego, who were both patient with our broken spanish and very competent mechanics.

It was not an easy project, that much was obvious!
