Contest 28 - Bent compression post
« on: 17 April, 2017, 21:44:03 »
Hello forum,

We have discovered that the compression post on our beloved Contest 28 is bent, and we have now lowered the mast to be able to remove and have a new one made. But, in the process we discovered that a straight post will not fit in the same place as the end of the bench will be in the way of the post, and that we will have to cut away parts of the original bench to make place.

Have any other contest 28 owners experienced similar?

Did they come with a bent post as an added benefit?

How serious is this? There are no cracks, and there does not seem to have been any depressions in the cabin roof.
