But that's why I need to inspection boring. Where they go through the hull is where I can't see whats going on. I could only see what the bolt looked like down to where it went started to go through the bottom.

Do you think 12" into the lead would be sufficient?
Yeah, but don't do it.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
