I am not so sure the steel I-beam was so much for spreading the load, but for simplifying production. When you make a sloop, yawl, and ketch rig as Westsail did with the 42's, the main mast needs to be spotted in different places. The I-beam certainly made that easy during production. But at the expense of space underneath (we now have LOTS of space under those floors, even for tanks, though we are not sure what we will do with it).

On the other hand, if you have room, consider spreading the load.

Bud, of course would know better. I am curious as to his response.

FLASH... Large inventory of used sailboat equipment, parts & supplies at great prices. After a 10-year circumnavigation in a Westsail 43, the owners are now clearing out all the excess and getting back to life ashore. Outfit your boat with well-kept equipment and save yourself a bunch of cash in the process!
