What kind of Boat! You can go to any place and search! Measure old ones!

http://www.westmarine.com/search?Ntt=Gas+springs

Make sure to find the proper pounds of resistance! Or your boxes will open and warp lids if you purchase ones that are too stout! Then your carpet will tear! Hinges will fail!

You're welcome!

Need to know the lb load of the gas shock. Take your fish weighing scales and attach to the hatch needing shock replaced place all open and read lb`s to hold open. That weight X 2 and the open and closed length.

Call Skeeter or a dealer and see if they know, then you can go to a parts store. If they are the smaller compartments I would think a 30 would be fine. Or if you want to try a couple of mine and see if they work you can. You know where I'm at in Old Town Lewisville.
