I hate to ask, but, why do you need to replace your struts? I'm assuming you are asking about your shaft struts, pictures should help Why are your current ones unrepairable? Normal inch and a half shafts?

330 Cummins with 2 inch
Corrosion issues caused the damage
I'm surprised they are not available considering all the 3988 around

Have you got a part/casting number?
These struts are probably not a Bayliner only usage and may be a very common part for years. This guy is at Dagmars in Everett and may have what you need and not know it without a casting number. I'd be happy to look for you but I'm in dry dock having had back surgery (trim & refit a couple of discs then fuse them) August 1st so I don't dare go junk yarding. seattle.craigslist.org/sno/bpo/d/lots-of...sale/6245129733.html
There's also a fun store in Poulsbo, longspmarine.com/ that may have something.

Patterned in Bellingham and sent to foundry for moulding.
All done and like new for under 2 gs for both.
My next step was to have then fabricated from stainless
