Re: PSC 34 compression post

My original compression post had the appearance of white oak. The wiring groove in the port side was covered with a piece of perhaps 1/2" teak held in place with screws. Had I or the surveyor taken it off, the water damage would have been quite apparent as the post had rotted from the inside out.
