On my 2005 X-10, the center ballast tank floor locker has a gas strut to hold it open. One of the two brackets that the gas strut mounts to is made out of steel and had rusted to pieces. I located a Stainless Steel replacement bracket that is an exact replica from Lewis marine supply in Stuart Florida. (772) 286-2118. It is a "Stainless Steel Flat Bracket, part# BR-202-32 made by Ameritool MFG LLC. The salesperson there mailed me one and with shipping I paid about $4.50 for it. What a deal! Thought i'd pass this on to anyone that needs one. See the attached drawing to show the dimensions.
