I won't be back to the boat until Saturday but will snap a picture.
I guess it could be a bolt... I can't see the head
part of it. I'll just call it a bolt
All I see is the threads of the bolt sticking up through a fiberglass
crossmember in the bilge
that goes through the rubber donut for the flex mount on the front of the M18. There is a nut on the end of the bolt. The bolt is no longer being kept from spinning by whatever it is mounted in/on. If I could get the nut off, I'm assuming the bolt would just fall into a void in the fiberglass
. I suppose I could cut the bolt off, fill the hole, and try to bed
a new bolt in there but I'm concerned that this would not stand up to the vibration...
Looking for ideas
