    Greetings everybody!
    I am asking on behalf of a friend of mine who doesn't speak English (...)
    He owns a BERTRAM 37' Convertible (1990) and went aground on a reef.
    Propellers, shafts and both struts were impacted (no damages to the hull :)
    Problem solved for the props and shafts.
    Now, the problem is that both struts are not only bent, but also twisted. I called Bertram to ask for some blue prints, or a dealer to whom he could order two new struts. Bertram said that all old models blue prints etc were discarded... And they couldn't direct me anywhere to find new struts.
    Hence, my question : would someone in the group have either a contact name where to order them, or even better, a copy of the design of the struts? There is someone here in Martinique who could work on them, but he needs the correct design (angle, etc)
    Thank you very much et merci :)
    Alain
