Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Gas Struts for Engine Hatch
Hi Duane, I am not on my boat for a couple of weeks, but I ordered mine from a company recommended on this forum. Reasonably priced, stainless, quick service and shipping, and fits well. I’m sure you can find the conversation with a bit of searching..toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

I need to replace the gas struts for the engine hatch.
I've looked at the forum and found Bill R's note that they are rated at 400 Newton (90 pounds), and I measure the length at 22.5" extended length and a stroke length of 8".
The problem is I cannot find a gas strut with bolted connections. They seem to come in clevis and ball joint.
Does anyone have a source reference?
