Ericson 39: rusted steel under floor??

6/23/11 I'm thinking about buying an a 1971 Ericson 39. The boat that I am looking at has some rusted steel cross members under the cabin floor located about 3 feet forward of the mast step. It looks like it is a floor support but no one, no one, would use 3/4" thick steel plate to support a fiberglass floor.

Is the 3/4" steel assenbly a necessary part of the boat's structure???

Please reply if you have information or if you can point me at someone who may know if the boats structure is sound.

Thank You,

Jerry
