Mast step repair

Hi all; I've owned a 323 a couple of years ago, and am considering a 365 now. I know that the mast step will probably have to be re-built. My question is concerning the keel below the step. There is the old iron step under the mast, and it appears to be bolted to the hull with some bolts. What is under those bolts? Is it the lead keel, and are the bolts into lead, steel, fibreglass? Will the old bolts likely come out, or will they be rusted off stubs sticking up? Can new bolts be put in?
Thanks.

I'm not looking for mass approval. Is everybody ok with that?
