Ah, I was the one who gave you the advice not Sailho, sorry Sailho, at least I think I was. I'm 510datsun, I posted up how I fixed the compression post with plenty of pictures, just didn't have the jack up pictures.

I just took some pictures on how I jacked up my cabin top, but my mast was off. I will post them tomorrow night or Monday.
I took the metal post out because it was driving me nuts thinking about having to fish the mast wires through the small holes then the tube itself. I'm going to drill the holes out to 1 3/8 and put in 1 inch PVC pipe, wires will pass through easy with no hanging up.
