i think they make them in stainless ! if you use the steel ones you better make sure your drain hole is always clear.

Why would you buy another one if they only last a year?

Trash that junk and put in some hyrdaulic ones.

Phil, what's the problem with them? They aren't holding the hatches up anymore or they're corroding?

I replaced mine with some I got from Lip-Ship a couple years ago. They've worked perfect for the past two seasons. The ones I replaced were the originals. The port side still held the starboard side was very weak.
