I don't know if the 46 has it, but the 36 had steel framing, and they almost always rust out. That will be a big job to fix. The one I looked at you could stick a pen through them. I walked away rather quickly.

Thank you for the reply
and yes it does have the steel supports but they are still solid its the actual I beam mast supports between them witch forms the support for the mast steps that are rusted out and will need to be replaced.
it looks like it can be un bolted out and have a new one re bolted in to the supports some what easily
But in any case I have already bought the boat and will be starting repairs in the spring, so what I am looking for now is information on the on the boats model ie, the drawings, blueprints and/or manuals. or info on how I would go about getting them
so I can get a steel shop to make them for me
I also need to find the prop shaft specks to replace it

or any thing that you think would help with the project
thanks
