Re: compression post I Beam

Hello again I can't get pictures the boat is to far away.Should have when I was there yesterday.
The boat is a 1980 hunter.the compression post is wood sitting on top of what looks like a small I BEAM.
Top side looks and sounds soild.Everything sounds good & soild.
When you lift the bilge cover you can see the I BEAM and its bent.
The surveyer said to get it looked at. im just looking for a SAFE boat to learn on. He said it should be OK for what I'm trying to do. Just trying to get more input.Any info would help.
