Exclamation Hurth transmission advice needed

While sailing this weekend I evidently blew a seal on my transmission. The bilge was filled with red trans fluid. I had also heard a slight rattling while under power that day that I couldn't trace. My boat is a 1972 Hallberg-Rassy Rasmus 35 with a Perkins 4-108 and Hurth transmission.

Can anyone recommend a good mechanic who would come to the boat and advise me? I'm in Alameda, California. I don't want to get her into some boat yard without a good idea of what I might be in for!

Any advice or recommendations greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
