FWIW -

My short boat trip got cancelled (for non boat related reasons), so I decided to do a thorough cleaning of the inside to burn off frustration. While cleaning under the stove I heard the propane hose rub on the bottom of the stove. I looked back there with a mirror and noticed when the stove is locked in the static/vertical position, the propane hose touches the bottom of the stove as it goes vertical to the fitting near the top of the stove. This is a safety issue to me, so I made an "L" shaped guide and velocroed it in place to give the hose a 1/2" gap.

Your boats may be different, but it's worth a look behind the bottom of the stove with a mirror.

From the 101 Topics:

Lift Supports 101 (gas struts)  http://www.liftsupportsdepot.com/

They should be able to help you choose the right one.

Oh the cockpit locker lid.  Sorry everyone I had anchor locker lid on my mind.  What I've done with my "cockpit" locker lid is taken off the lock hasp and put a short webbing loop on the lid.  Really saves my shins.  The lid also has a small vinyl covered wire that clips to the life line or stern railing to hold it up.  I've never considered a gas spring, probably could get one to work, but, for me, think it would get in the way when I'm stuffing too much into the locker.

Rob : I have a 1/8" short nylon line tied to the hasp with a loop in the open end.  Lift up the locker lid and the loop goes around the top of the primary winch to hold the lid open.  Lid down - that nylon line just lays on the cockpit floor out of the way!!   :thumb:

Was thinking about the anchor locker lid a little more, was into it yesterday.  I use a padlock hasp to open and close the lid, then use the wire/clip to hold it.  Are you missing either?

Shamrock has a short vinyl covered wire under the lid, clips to the pulpit, and holds the anchor locker lid up.  It's up or down no slamming.
