Re: Compression post issue

Damned clever, that! It's heavy but low in the boat so it doesn't affect stability. In addition to being rot proof it forms to fit the bottom and spreads the load, too. Did you put in a tube or anything while it was wet so bilge water can move? The only caution I can think of is to make sure it is absolutely dry when the weather freezes.
