hi guys..went out yesterday to look at the boat and I noticed the 2 springs that keep the gate up were broken?..the 2 springs appear to
have been cut at the same spot(1/2 inch dif)...now I know when I cleaned up the boat I washed that area with the hose and played with the gate so it had to have happened in storage?...we just when through a large temperature change in the last 2-3 weeks(-29c to +8 c)..would that do it, perhaps I damaged one on the river and it decided to "let loose" later?
..also, do all the parts appear to be in place on the jet?..thinking maybe someone tampered with it?
last but not least--is it hard to replace these two springs?
thanks for any help!! larry
that string thing was a piece of seaweed and the white stuff is frost
