Morgan Heritage West Indies 38 1976

Hi All

I am looking at the above boat here in Sydney, I liked the lines lay out etc however, when examining the keel bolts notices steel beams that were heavily rusted to the point on a couple of beams that chunky bits were falling off.
Can anyone advise as to whether or not this could be a problem with the structural integrity?
I have read a lot of posts for and against the boat but theu are all 5 to 10 years old.
Any advice will be appreciated.
