HELP! Need new Strut for Cal 2-27

I'm on the hard with various issues. My strut is busted up, and not much metal left for rebuilding. Anybody know of, or have, a 2-27 strut? Doesn't have to be pristine, as long as it is all there.

I haven't seen any posts saying you hit something or otherwise damaged, what happened to your strut? Is the rest of you new drivetrain ok?

The rest is fine. I went aground. The strut may have already been beoken, which would explain why I simply could not get proper shift alignment.

Have you tried Buck's? Struts On Buck Algonquin

I bought an adjustable so I could pull the shaft w/o having to pull the rudder.
