Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

As others have said you need to fix it now.

Replace BOTH bolts. If possible get aircraft quality bolts.

The broken bolt might very well come out easily but if not heat is your friend. Get someone with a gas axe to come along and heat up the casing. Fire extinquishers at the ready of course [or a water hose].
