The owner’s profile says it’s a Newport 30 Mk2, so it’s from the 70’s.
That pic looks like a typical strut and shaft for a Newport 30 with an Atomic 4 engine, except for the fiberglass around the strut.

Any surveyor would have examined that strut and shaft. Wrapping a strut in fiberglass is a sure sign of previous damage to the strut and maybe the hull.
