'83 Jason 35- stainless bolts in the bilge.

Well, yes, it's me again. Hull thickness Jace for the Jason 35?

Another question. (by the way, I got the boat. yep, she's mine)

Anyway, she has an encapsulated keel. So, in the bilge toward the back there is a built-out square of - I'm assuming - glass against the port wall of the bilge about halfway down, midway up from the bilge floor. And sticking out of the middle of it side by side are two stainless bolts with nuts tightened onto them. They are maybe three inches long and around 3/8ths of an inch thick. It appears to be aft of the lead ballast. It's just in front of the engine, if I remember correctly.

Any ideas what they are? Why they are there?

Thanks.
