Are u talking about the hydraulic gas shock?If so,bring the old one to your local parts plus or napa automotive store and they can measure the cylinder and extended length and order one.A lot cheaper than the boat dealer.

I think he's saying he currently has a lockable spring, so that's not gonna work.
I would imagine if you measure the spring closed, and then fully open you'll get the full needed extension/length. I imagine a weight rating of 10-15lbs would be plenty.
Try this link http://www.mcmaster.com/ and in the search type in "gas shocks" it'll take you to page 1137 (and there's 6 more pages).
It should explain everything.
They are pretty reasonable on most items, and you can find almost ANYTHING!!
Pay by CC, and normal shipping to a business is usually next day anyway.

That's what this place is all about. I noticed you're fairly new, or don't post a lot. Welcome to the party.
