New Keel Bolts

I have a recommendation from a well respected surveyor on for a similar, but less serious (hopefully) issue on the 1987 Pearson 31-2 I just purchased. According to him the fix is to not replace the bolts, but to drill in new lag bolts to reinforce. Then of course acheive and maintain a dry bilge and seal all the bolts.
