P30 strut?

Just found out I need a new strut for the prop shaft. Anyone know where I could get one, and likely cost?

Thanks!

Jeff

Re: P30 strut?

As you know, these boats are long out of production and most parts are not available. Your most likely hope is to get one from a derelict P30.

I see that you are in Arnold. I recall a fairly derelict P30 at Rockhold Creek Marina. I recommend you call them and ask about the part.

What happened to your strut? This sounds kind of suspicious to me. I could see needing a new cutlass bearing, or perhaps your strut was nearly torn out of the hull, but the strut itself is pretty tough.

Sounds like it corroded where it bolts to the hull. Thanks for the lead, I'll see if I can track it down.

Be careful on a used strut as the bronze could be deteriorating because of galvanic corrosion. ( turning pink as mine did). I would suggest a new one if possible. Check Buck Algonquin or Miller Island Propeller.
