I have 37 feet Holiday Mansion( got it month ago) and doing some remodeling. Does those houseboats have a ballast or a keel?. I found very rusted 3 large bolts under the floor in sleeping area.

Not sure I understand your question. Some had keels, some didn't. The keels were around 6" thick and maybe 10" tall. My best guess is the keel was installed after the hull was molded. Mine has a keel.

Were the bolts just laying there? Or were they screwed into something? There are no bolts in my keel.
