Damn it guys, be careful about taking a compression post out.
It is not just a question of the size of the boat.
The compressive forces there are terrible if the wind rises.
It looks a bit of a nuisance, but I certainly wouldn't take it out of there.... those chainplates look like they wouldn't take any prisoners.
