Thanks - but I'm ONLY interested in working on this from the outside of the hull. On the inside, I have a plug where the engine mount is going to be reinstalled.

I'm going to dive down tomorrow or Wednesday and attempt to insert a bolt with washers (if the curvature of the hull at this location permits), and bond it with some type of underwater-curing epoxy.

Unless better alternatives are presented here.... Thanks for your suggestions, everyone.
