Often the compression of the deck is what leads to the water damage—not the other way around. A properly designed boat would have a compression post or bulkhead that spread the load properly and prevented the deck from sinking down at the base of the mast.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
