That sucks!!

Yes, the strut can be replaced, If you look in one of the lazarettes you can see the bolt ends and nuts that hold it in place. You will probably have to pull the shaft to check to see if it is bent.

The strut is described by the angle, the drop from mounting flange to center of the cutlass bearing, and the OD of the cutlass bearing.

If it is the original strut, chances are it will come apart in your hands if you try to bend it back. Twenty five years of electrolysis have probably embrittled it.

At least you got a $800 dollar mooring line and a free football!!

If you need pics or dimensions, mine is on the hard. It has a Farymann diesel and a large shaft vibration damper. I am guessing the A4 or the Farymann use the same shaft log and shaft angle.

What about insurance? Between the haul/put back, parts and labor a good number of boat bucks is going to disappear.

Good Luck,

Thanks John!
Please send information that you do have. They pulled the boat and look confused. 25 year old strut broke in half and prop hit bottom. Waiting for insurance adjuster from West marine. My first claim.
