C25 keel bolts

The nuts on the bolts (1980 C25) are getting kind of small, though the bolts don't look too bad. Anyone done anything to replace either, or perhaps just add more support without dropping the keel?

I have heard of people "sistering" new stainless lugs or all-thread directly into an external lead keel.

As former commodore, I'd suggest you google our association. I have done this repair, as have many, many members. There are threads with photos, advise, and where to buy the kit.
