    I need to replace shaft strut on my sailboat and I was thinking about using one of this universal struts
    The thing is I am more familiar with this type of strut which is bolted thru the hull like my old strut was. The problem is I couldn’t find strut with dimensions that would fit my boat so I think about the universal strut. The question is what would be the best way to attach it to the hull; just glass it in…?
