The "monster beam" on the foredeck is the lower part of the mast. I
won't call it a tabernacle, but it serves the same purpose. It's got a
hinge loose-pin hinge on top, with the other half of the hinge on the
bottom of the rest of the mast:https://flic.kr/p/2huFJLW
I'm still interested in the Honda, if it can be arranged for me to see it.

I can’t tell what the monster beam on the foredeck is about. The transom would be easy enough to repair and beef up. My Honda 2 hp or my Tohatsu 3.5 would look good on that boat, then.
