I didn't try to remove the nuts normally. I picked up a nut breaker and a chisel from Harbor freight for about ten bucks and cut the nuts off. Many were so corroded that simply hitting with a hammer caused them to disintegrate. The bolts were actually in pretty good shape. The nuts were exposed to fresh water from leaks around the windows. (My next big project) I felt that stainless was a better choice in the bilge. After looking at the posts here it was stainless or bronze and I didn't have the money or the time to get the bronze. These should last for the life of the boat. (I hope!)
Good Luck
joe
