Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

I would recommend removing the broken bolt and replacing both bolts as the remaining bolt with the head may have been compromised and may also lose it's 'head' (pun intended)... I would not trust the loads imparted on one bolt all that time (may be ready to shear off too)... good thing you spotted it sooner than later...
