Does any one know exactly how the bottom of the compression
post is held in place? Do you have to remove the sole to inspect
it? It appears to be glassed in and sitting on the lead but its
hard to get an idea peeking through the bilge hatches.
I have cut out the core above the post to reveal rot and some
dampness. The top of the post is free and it can move around
somewhat. As I am soon to bed in a 1/4", tapering to 1", 8"
diameter , solid glass pad above the post I wonder what might be
done to the bottom while at this junture. Any Commander owners
that have had their compression posts out or any thoughts as to
what might lurk at the posts bottom would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers, B.
