Re: stepping/unstepping mast on Cal 25-2
Captainmem, it's not keel step. There is no aluminum in the cabin. But there is a compression post built into the teak cabinet work, I assume for aesthetics since compression posts are not works of art. You can tell it's a compression post because it's 3 to 3 1/2 inches thick x 6 and is located right under the mast.
I will try to get photos. The boat is not mine but one I am looking at buying. So I have to get with the seller to get back aboard and back inside.
