    i will I’ll be at the boat this weekend wiring the lights and speakers in the headliner.  I can get you exact measurements then.  I do know that the beams were laminated separately using the old beams as the guide for the height (not the width though), and to get the placement of the hole for the mast wiring.

    after seeing and participating in it I would say that it is a very doable project.  But nothing was bonded in place so if yours is that would make it a challenge.

    the compression post is 6”x1 7/8”

    the beams (which I do believe were laminated separately) are 3- 3 1/8” wide on the aft beam

    and 2-2 1/8” on the forward beam.  These were made that way to just beef it up.  It’s has much more contact area than previously and honestly I liked the esthetics of the larger dimension.  

    I ‘I hope this helps.

    Just curious about photos - I know there were some on this thread in the past but they have all seemed to disappear.

    Hi Jay B.,

    I think this thread had some images in the past (unless I saw pics of this repair from some other source) - but I did reach out to Byron and Dave directly and received some pics from them.

    I'll be laminating some beams in the next few weeks. Mine were termite damaged.

    I've found a album with images of how the top of the mast post can be "fixed"  but no pics about the bottom supports. 

    Can you take pics of your work and upload them to this topic? I can assist with this as needed.
