The adjustable stay fitted to the fore hatch of my Family Pilot has finally given up the unequal struggle with salt water corrosion and I am looking to replace it. Can anybody tell me where I can obtain a replacement strut? I have toyed with the idea of using a gas strut but these are either too powerful and would tear the hatch right off or are domestic cupboard struts which are too short. Neither of these options however would provide any method of holding the hatch in a part open position.

I would be most grateful for the benefit of members advice.
