Replacing compression post w/SS post?
I'm in the process of completely restoring/upgrading an 82 C-27. My compression post looks pretty good but does show signs of having been wet (duh). This got me to thinking....should I replace the wooden compression post and upgrade with a stainless steel type? I'm a big fan of overbuilding and feel like a stainless steel upgrade would give me one less thing to think about down the road.
What are the advantages/disadvantages?
What would I step it on? Should I upgrade from what is currently under there. I already plan on doing the factory recommended keel upgrade so doing a bit more work while I'm in there is no big deal.
