Islander 36 Keel Bolts

I'm considering buying a 1980 I36 and am concerned with the appearance of the keel bolts. What I see are the tops of bolts (similar to what lag bolts look like when screwed all of the way in) rather than the usual threaded studs with washers and nuts tightened down. First, is this typical of the I36? Second, if not what do you make of it? Many thanks in advance.

Re: Islander 36 Keel Bolts

Many boats use bolts to attach a separate keel, particularly a cast iron one, which is what I believe is on the I36.
