4207 engine room access hatch gas shocks

Postby Tjsabo » October 27th, 2015, 12:05 pm

So, I can't be the only 4207 owner out there that has wanted to install dual gas shocks on my engine room access/stairs.
I thought this might be a great winter project but I started to research " The extended length is the distance between point R and K (closed) in your calculation on the previous page in which this length must be long enough to include two stroke...." ......but wait maybe someone has already done the brain work.
So who out there has already installed them?

Welcome aboard!
When we had our 4207, I just had the wife do it.
And if you believe that..................

Nice idea. Too bad I didn't think of it.
Thanks

Chris, I never did put them since I never had the idea while I had the boat.
Thanks
