Viking 28 refit question

I'm doing a full up refit on a viking 28. I'm looking to find out if I can replace the mast support truss with a compression post.

Thanks,
Brian

Re: Viking 28 refit question

As long as you can build up the hull structure to spread out the loads better should be doable. Guessing G10 fiberglass board from McMaster Carr would be best. What about getting to the vberth/head? What about keel bolt access and limber holes? I haven't looked at mine in this context as the cross beam is solid in mine. Bear in mind that the top of the compression post must be solidly located anyhow, otherwise sail forces could push it sideways, crushing a weak cabin top skin /structure.
