1984 C&C 24 Compression Post rotted


I have a serious problem with the compression post on my 1984 C&C 24. The guy at the marina, who I trust, looked at it and said "We’re going to have to replace that piece. Not necessarily with what’s there. Let me think about it." Has anyone replaced their compression post? Anyone know where I can get a replacement?

The post itself seems OK to me, just the seat's disintegrated. You might be able to re-seat the post in a floor flange from a plumbing supply store if you can find the right size and metal type. Or get something fabricated to fit. Just a thought.
