  • Hatch Strut

    Anyone know of a replacement strut for the hatch on a cutty cabin? I'd think they'd be a common item, but I cannot locate one. A search for hatch strut turns up gas struts like those used in the automotive industry. My 230 is missing them for the cabin hatch at the door to the cuddy and the overhead hatch in the cutty. TIA.

    was it the metal spring type?

      No idea. I recently bought the boat. Both hatch supports were missing. I bought Gemlux hinges to hold the entrance hatch up, but that still allows the hinged fore-portion to swing freely. The overhead hatch needs a strut of some type to hold itself open so that fresh air can enter.

            Will they keep the hatch open when running?

                  Yes, they hold it up well. You just have to start to bend both springs together to get it closed.

                    I'll give those a try. I assumed the originals were a notched strut or slider with friction knob.
