Mast Step / Deck

Hi all, I wonder if anyone has any experience of weakness in the maststep area?  Whilst it's not recent and doesn't leak, there is some distortion in the immediate area on the deck around the step and with the boat getting older, (40 ys) I find myself less reluctant to really tighten the stays. I presume there is some reinforcing in the cabin top, and obviously there's a bulkhead underneath, but rebuilding that area looks tricky to say the least. Predictably, I tend to think of this when we're slamming to windward in 30 knots - as you do in any older boat, but any thoughts? JCD
