photo of gas piston for mast
Here are photos of my 125# stainless steel gas piston. These allow me to raise and lower the mast with one hand on my Ocean Alexander Classico 423.
You are more than welcome to use this plan. Remember, there is a 1/4 inch aluminum backing plate behind each stainless outside plate. IF you would like more photos please contact me at the email address in the February posting.
