Hatch cylinders


Recommended Posts

My gas shockswere Ameritool brand.  I bought a few from the distributor for Ameritool, which is Maxum Hardware.  Then I ordered a few from  from MBG (Ray in Parts) through a Pathfinder dealer.  They were cheaper by a good bit straight from Pathfinder (MBG). :D  All of my shocks were 30 lb shocks.  You can look up model info on the barrel of the shock.  I did buy the round, SS ends from Maxum, and they are a nice little upgrade from the plastic, standard ends that you have.

Nice looking boat you have, by the way!

my compartments didn't look that good new. now they look like someone got sick in there.

HAHA.  It is called OCD disease.  Several times a year, I take some kind of spray cleaner (bleach) and paper towels to them and the bilge.  It doesn't take long.   I enjoy piddling like that when the fish aren't biting, it ain't blazing hot, and the boss lady is on the war path!!!!!!  LOL

While I was having fun in my "busy season," I had the entire boat professionally detailed.  More OCD flare up!

30 lb shocks work perfectly on mine.  I have them on every hatch in the boat, with the exception of the anchor locker. 



JEM any chance you can share a link to the exact hydraulics you installed for each hatch?  Did you do the live wells as well?

Boat looks great!
