BOLT head in the Bilge...

So we're off cruising, finally, and we've had a few issues with the boat and engine, but nothing major. But today I found a head of a large bolt in the bilge. Searched for the place it came from and found that it was from part of a engine mount. (see photo)
So, I realize it's not good, to say the least...but is it an urgent problem? I mean, fix immediately problem...fix before proceeding any further?
And, how am I to remove/replace that bolt?
Currently we are on a mooring in Marathon, FL.
Any advice would be appreciated... Thanks!
