PSC 34 compression post

It appears that I've developed a leak in or around the mast (probably for some time) and the compression post has started to split down the center lamination, about 3/8 inch at its widest. I do plan to have the local boatyard take a look at it asap. I know the mast will have to be dropped and and mast step checked for leaks. If anyone had experience replacing/repairing their compression post would you please share your advice.
