Would anyone happen to have the keel bolt torq specs for a 1970 Ranger23?

Thanks in advance,

May not apply to "Ranger", but FYI
C&C recommended the following Keel Bolt Torques:
1/2" Diameter Bolt @ 180 Ft/Lbs
3/4" Dia Bolt @ 250 Ft/Lbs
1" Dia Bolt @ 350 Ft/Lbs
Regards,
Gord

Ranger 23 Keel Bolts Torq Specs

Thanks Gord for the information. There use to be a site called Ranger23.com, but I can not get access to it any longer. I am the third owner of the boat and did not receive a manual. I know Ranger is no longer in business and without a manual the torq specs for the keel bolts can only be a guess.
This boat is over 30 years old and without any maintenance records I would like to aleast verify the torq settings for the keel bolts. I do not have a problem with leaks yet but I believe it will be only a matter of time.
Thanks for your time and infomation,
Matt
