I am planning a complete restoration of mine this winter and plan on removing the entire deck to recore it. I am planning to add a carbon fiber core under the mast to support the weight and transfer the load to the bulk head and to the hull.

Also interested in the answer to this issue
I also have a 1968 Ericson 30' with this sagging mast step issue. I read in one sailing book that these deck stepped masts should have a compression post added, even if it means it will obstruct access forward.

1968 Ericson 30 compression post?
Hello all, been getting my "new" boat ready for the trip around from Ft. Myers to Miami and I noticed a bit of a sag from the mast step interior arch...
Has anyone put in a compression post or used any other plan to limit the sag that I've got?
Thanks in advance!
