Re: Replacing compression post w/SS post?

S.S. is a good idea. Make it beefy so it gives the look of strength. I'd go 3" OD max. It will look "right". Try to step it on a plate that bridges two hefty athwartships floors so the load is well spread out. Put a nice wide beefy flange on the top of it. Make the flange dimensions greater than the footprint of the mast.

Please visit my blog. It's fun to read.
