That's what I was thinking about with my "triangle mast" idea in that rough sketch. Or maybe I don't understand what you are saying.

Edit:

Wait, are you talking about an arched post (or two) inside? That's interesting. Could a compression post be mounted to the interior floor or does it have to go to something more substantial?
