rosskowh is on a distinguished road
i am in charleston sc, compression post went well. i replaced it with a Philippine mahogany. the mast step and surrounding area feels solid, may be all glass, i dont know. the rigging i believe has been replace in the last 6 yrs maybe, just a guess, the boat didnt get much use until i bought it a year ago. i havent seen signs of fraying and it feels smooth and solid, not dry or over tensioned if you know what i mean. we actually sailed it off the sc coast in january last year, only a few miles offshore for 3 days with a rotten compression post, broken chainplate, no engine and strong winds "20-30knts", luck may have had something to do with it....
