    Does the GP1800 have a hood shock/strut ?

    I went to the boat show the other day and didnt ask the dealer. Does the GP1800 have a hood shock/strut ? If there is not strut then the hood has to be held open while retrieving anything from the front storage ? If anyone on hear knows thanks in advance.

    Also worth noting the hood sometimes hits at the bottom point when the hood is opened to the catch point (where it will lock in the open position). Some have noted a paint chip where to hood hit the base. Grrr. Sloppy design IMHO.
