Umm...

If they've been weeping a while, it would probably be wise to drop the keel and check the keel bolts for crevice corrosion. If you don't do this, the bolts may be near the point of failure and may fail without warning. Steel or stainless steel keel bolts are particularly susceptible to this problem.

As for the torque specification, why not call C&C and ask them??

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
