Bud, Namaste has a slight problem with the compression post. It appears that the bottom end has become somewhat soft. I've noticed that the head door get stuck when the mast is up and rigging tensioned while it was flying freely with the mast down.
I figure the compression at the post is no more than half an inch. Possibly nothing to worry about but I'd rather see no compression at all.
What would be the best way of tackling this problem? Cut the soft part off and put a block of wood under? what sort of wood? I presume the post is sitting directly on the top of the ballast?
thanks,
Wojtek, s/v Namaste

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
