Gas Springs

Has anyone found a match for the gas springs used in the 99.  Looking for one for the icebox lid and chart table top.

There's nothing special about the gas springs that came with the boat.  They are ordered with an extended length, stroke and pressure rating.

I believe the original gas springs were supplied to C&C by SPD Gas Springs in Ohio.  I replaced the ones on my companionway years ago.  However, if I recall, SPD doesn't normally deal with end users and it was painful. If you can read the part numbers on the ones in your boat you might be able to check SPD's website for their specs.

 

Got one for the ice box from the Binnacle on a special order.  Sea Dog makes them http://www.sea-dog.com/groups/437-gas-filled-lift-spring
