Rusty Keel Bolts

Does anyone know how to change the keel bolts on a 1973 Pearson 26? They appear rusty. Thanks for your help.

There,s surface rust and there,s rusting away . Maybe a photo or two before reaching for the heavy tools might shed some light.
If they need replacing it seems usual to drop the keel so its a big job.
Safe sailing
