Through bolting them with the proper bedding compound would make them far more secure than using just a sealant alone, even 5200 wouldn't be as secure as having them through-bolted with a proper backing plate.
If you're worried about someone unscrewing the bolts... put a second locking nut on the inside...and that should prevent them from being unscrewed without access to the interior of the boat.

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.
