This is just what we are doing to our 42. The "pad" for the compression post run's the length between the joists. Specifically designed to take veritcal compression loads and spread it fore and aft. Though my guess is the keel is so thick right there that a thin sqaure pad might be enough. Just make sure the pad can withstand the compression and not crush.
