Can anyone tell me who supplies marine grade gas struts around Perth, or even an online seller ?

Cheers

I have had to replace the ice box struts on my Boston. I go to https://www.strutspecialists.com.au/contact. They are located in Osborne park, marine grade, and have worked well. Price was very reasonable from recollection.
