Ron,

I am working on installing gas struts. That cockpit floor is getting heavy.
I'll send you the specs of the struts I picked and the location (tried a couple of spots, did not work).

The gas struts that assist opening the cockpit floor and holding the hatch open are seriously deteriorated on my boat. Rather than reinvent the wheel, I was wondering if anyone has found a source and knows the specs for these struts.  I have an older Meltem, but I’ve seen the cockpit access up through super maramus and they are pretty much the same.
