I would pull the bilge floor cover or look around the sole at the bottom of the post, and look to see if the compression post is all the way to the keel or if it is resting on the saloon plywood floor. You may not have much of an issue with the compression post stopping on the sole because the bulkhead supports all the way across the top and provided the floor has proper solid stringers to support the floor. You would only get a small of any amount of compression at the plywood. Islander used very good marine plywood on my '71, just wasn't supported by properly placed stringers at the compression post.

Here is a link to my thread on my compression post fix with pictures
