Bryan, I was having some problems with compression under the mast step, the aft edge the step was actually impacted by 1/8 inch or so, and there was cracking in the back and along the sides, so we had a plate of g10 fiberglass installed under the mast step to better spread the load, probably in the neighborhood of 6 x 9 inches (larger footprint than the mast step). You should also check the load bearing structure under the mast in the cabin, we had some work done there as well.
