So I am going to replace my struts after this season. The one is really eaten away from the corrosion and the other isn't in that bad of shape but it still has the original bearings. I have talked with Marinette about making a new struts however they would need a template and I would need to ship mine down so they could get the specs to make the new ones. Should I go that route or just look to a machine shop?

I also have a question about when I reinstall them. Should I put a sealant, 5200, on the base of the strut before bolting it down? Does that have the strut isolated from my hull?
