Bent 15.5 probably means that this pillar is bent 15.5%. I am only guessing. I know that they do maintenace checks . During this latest visit I concentrated more on the details and noticed lots of rust and decay ( and bent pillars ) . This is an old mostly wooden pier . If you are curious about this pier please refer to my " Crystal Pier " set for more details . More to come . Enjoy !
