s/v Code Blue – La Paz and Transmission Change Back to Original December 29, 2013

We’ve been in La Paz a week and getting ready to head to Mazatlan for a few days, then harbor hop down to PV. Engine Hrs 2835.1, Odometer 5036, Trip NM 4696.

I took out the replacement transmission that was 2.33 to 1, and Rob Cross of Cross Marine Works put in the newly rebuilt original transmission 2.64 to 1. We had it rebuilt in Everett, WA at Harbor Marine. A catamaran could of used this our 2.33 one a couple of weeks ago and he might be interested in the ours for the other side, but he’s selling the boat so maybe not.


We discovered the valves should be adjusted and injectors looked at soon as it’s been1500 hours or better since it was last done. Yanmar book recommends every 600 hours to check or service. It was Saturday and Rob could not reach any injector guys so we’ll work on this at the Yanmar dealer in Mazatlan.

Mostly have motored from Guaymas to La Paz. We have really good outgoing tide this morning, Sunday, but doesn’t look to me much wind.
