Re: BOLT head in the Bilge...

I'm betting the shaft of that bolt is stuck really tight. I've found over the years that the single biggest reason for bolt heads failing is over tightening - someone leaned on the wrench until they felt the bolt head start to give and called it good enough.

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.
