Lazarette hatch gas struts

Hi All I have a 77 CL36 with twin lazarette hatches and would like to install gas struts to them. I have a chain that holds them in the open position right now and think it would be a lot easier with gas struts. Has anyone done this and if so what weight, brand, length should I be looking for? Thanks

You might want to consider replacing the exhaust hose while you'r at it. A lot easier now.

Re: Cutlass Bearing

You can drill them out and retap with slightly larger allen set screw. Or drill with a smaller bit and chase the existing screw hole. Much easier then trying to get the old one out that will most likely need to be replaced anyway.

I should have said anodes! My anodes are all aluminum not zinc. Yes she is hooked to shore power but monitored every couple of days. What is the best way to check for leaks?

How long do your zincs last?

Hi All I was wondering how long your zincs last. I replaced mine, two per shaft and two for the hull 10 months ago and they are pretty much toast. Is that normal? The boat lives 5 months in brackash water and 7 in salt. All are aluminum.

Re: Tachometer

Follow Up: I looked today and could see that the copper pipe that goes from the expansion tank to the heat exchanger was very close to the sender contacts. After adjusting the pipe everything worked fine.
