Re your replacement strut, most replacement struts today (including the one on my Kirby 30 hull #8) are fabricated as a stainless weldment where the original was a bronze casting. There are one or two on the internet who make them. usually welding a piece of pipe (into which the cutlass bearing is driven) onto a solid SS riser. The riser is suitably ground teardrop beforehand. Good luck........ Francis Tibbetts

Any reason you're raising dead threads??? This is the second of Kirby 30 thread that you've revived from the dead...
