Help! I''''ve got rust!

Rosie is a motorsailer (Shucker 436) and below the mast, holding up the cradle in which the mast sits, thre is a steel pole that runs from the keel to just below the deck. On top of the pole is a square of steel, about 12" to a side. Leaking from the fixtures has caused rusting of this plate--about 15% of it, on the right. I have reseated the deck fixtures, but now need to know how to treat the plate to stop the rust and prevent further rusting. The darn thing is hard to reach, since I have to do this through a hole in the top of the cabin. Help and suggestions for procedures and products would be MUCH appreciated.
