On my own boat, I have modified it and it is now a RUM reserve with a capacity of 10 liters of rum..
Have a look at « THE COMPLETE ANCHORING HANDBOOK “on :

Eliminate Compression Post? Calculation of Force
For you structural engineers out there.
Anybody out there have a sense of how hard it would be to remove a mizzen compression post and replace the support function with an arch/box structure and side tie ins? I want the open space.
It is a 56 foot steel ketch and I assume that there is some downward force design load on the mizzen mast that, if met by the arch/box and distributed into the topsides could allow the removal of the post.
How is mast downward force calculated?
