Does anyone have direct experience replacing compression post support in an Irwin 42?

Working on very good friends 1976 Irwin 42 CC Ketch. The main mast is deck stepped, below that is a compression post. The post sit on top of the molded fiberglass interior liner. Directly below is (was) a steel H approx 10in x 16 in beam standing on end. It does not appear to have been crushed at all, but it has corroded severly, big shock I know. Access to it nearly impossible thru one small opening in the sole.

Wondering if anyone has done this that could share lessons learned. It looks like tub in forward head has to come out along with interior partion to head. We're wondering what we'll find then.

It appears to be similar but different than the 37. Any input is appreciated.

Thanks, Scott
