Compression post issue

I recently purchased a 1979 Islander 28. The comression post has sank / crushed into the floor.It has dorped a little over a half an inch. I was thinking of letting the turnbuckles out to realease tension, then jack up the compression post.Shimming it up with aluminum plate or fiberglass.
Is this a Dumb idea? I Would appreciate any advise, or info.
