Repairing Compression Post Base

As we went further into project rabbit hole with the water tank, we found our compression post to be corroded. Dawn Treader’s mast is well supported by a two inch bulkhead, the compression post is fiberglassed to this bulkhead. This made us question the importance of the post, but we decided to repair it regardless. At this point, why not?

    1. The nice thing about the Seawind sloops is that the mast is supported by a bulkhead and a compression post. We repaired our post, and thought it was a good idea. But didn’t think it urgent because we didn’t see signs of flexing overhead and we were confident in the bulkhead support.
