I still have my toe so I'm happy.  I think I will order new ones soon from Amel. As well.

Ben,


Sorry to read about your injury.  May it fully heal with as little pain as possible.

We got new struts from Amel in La Rochelle last year, as the starboard side one had just failed a few days before our arrival.  The new ones are all nice and shiny in silver; the old ones were black with just the pistons being silver.

I'm going to order some new toes from Amel, too...just to keep as spares.  I'm sure Alex already has a full set or two.

I now know if I had a good working set of struts, my accident would have been prevented or much less severe.. Shoes would have helped as well.  Another lesson learned.

So glad to hear that this story had a happy ending.  My Maramu has a lighter engine hatch than the SM but lacks the gas struts.  I was wondering if anyone has looked into upgrading the engine hatch on the Maramu to utilize the gas struts?  I rather like my toes and the wife’s too!

Best,

James
