I'm about to drop the mast for some other work so I'll take a closer work and try the steps you suggested.

Thanks again for the feedback.
In answer to your original question, I would say yes you can, as the mast was the main force on the deck, and that force is now transferred to the step via the new jack post. So all the deck now has to do is support it's own weight (and yours!)

Is there a Santana 22 forum who can provide more info?
