Default Hatch lifts

I have two electric hatch lifts but had to change the hatches from gull wing to lifting front to back.I see some of the cigarette guys have the same actuator but have a system that uses aa actuator like mine but is attatched to a system that has a scissor type piece and a piece that mounts to the bottom of the hatch and incorporates a roller.Does anybody know were I can get these.

Cigarette fabricates the hatch lifts that they use.A Mercruiser trim cylinder and trim pump is used to actuate the hatch.This system works well except when the kids that are washing your 38 Top Gun stay on the button too long and Rip the Cylinders out of the Boat.Damaging the hatch etc. P.S. this did not happen to me personally.

I have the Dana Marine hydraulic hatch hinges on my boat and really like them. Each hinge has a small actuator built into it and they run off of a dedicated trim pump...No big ram in the middle of the engine compartment and the hatch opens pretty fast, too...

Sreamin Rice, those do look sweet. How much were they? I heard that they are rather expensive.
