Venture 17 keel pivot pin mount

I'm getting back to repairing my broken swing keel pivot mounting hardware. I would really like to see the original design because mine undoubtedly is modified. All my bolts are broken off so an engineer buddy and I are looking at designing a new/cheap mount for the pivot pin.

Is there an exploded view of the factory design so I can see how the designer intended it to operate? I'd really like to know how wide the anchor plate is inside the hull and why they would have located the mounting bolts so far from the keel. My buddy and I are considering not using the original mounting holes at all. And he wants to open up the spine/rib so that we have side access. I'm wondering if there is any stiffening value to keeping the spine intact.

I'm going to try to post some pics to show you what my hardware looks like after I removed it following the pivot pin failure.
