Rudder Shaft Strengthening

Hi, I was looking at a 1990 Jeanneau Sun Magic recently and was told that some of these boats had their rudder shaft strengthened. I could not get any further info. Does anyone know why this was done (heard of any failures?) and how this needs to be done? If I buy this boat I would like to know whether this is a design issue that needs fixing or just some superstition of some owners. Thanks!

If you don't get an answer here, you might get one if you post in the Jeanneau Owners Forum

did some searching, but there is nothing related to be found.
the fact that nothing could be found means it is not a common issue?

cheers!
