Re: Is the boat yard screwing you? stories
It is entirely possible that the original strut was made of fiberglass. I recently discovered that my cutlass bearing housing was made completely of fiberglass and that's the way they came from the factory. Also found several powerboats with fiberglass struts, so apparently, it's not a rare thing. Might want to check with the manufacturer or their spec sheets to find out if this is the case.
