Compression Post by Thomas Wright

I am replacing/upgrading my compression post. Thomas Wright has an article on the web where he uses a 3" SS tube with an all-thread and nut of the inside diameter. I was told that he frequents this forum. Since his article suggests that his supplier is also in the Houston area, I am trying to contact Thomas Wright to find his supplier. Or, if you know of a supplier of 3" or 4" 316 SS tubing, all-threads, and nuts in the houston area, I would appreciate the info.

Mike...I don't remember a post by someone of that name...of course he may be anonymous. BUT...more likely...he hangs out on the Pacific Seacraft E-mail list here...look under resources on the top menu and then go to mail list and follow the links.

If this concerned a Crealock 37 at Clear Lake, I know who you're speaking of.

Compression Post

Hi,

I'm restoring an '86 37. The compression post is on the todo list. Did anyone ever find the article by Thomas Wright?

Thanks,
Jeff

Guys,
Tom Wright did a post replacement (with the mast up) on a pre Pac Seacraft 37.He posted a very detailed description of the truss to support the mast etc.I believe that he built a new post out of oak to replace the old rotted post. I cutoff and rplcd the soft section with a 3" ss pipe with a jack-screw.I did mine with the mast off the boat so no support truss was required.
Good luck,

My boat will be out of the water for 6 or so months. I'll probably replace the post as well. I scoured the archives but couldn't locate Thomas' article. If anyone has a copy or knows where I can find it, let me know.
