Large keel bolts torque

I am trying to find the torque value (oiled and clean) for 2" keel bolt (304 stainless).

Most "hand books" stop at 1-1/2" bolts. I read some posting from um saudade and was hoping to get some help here.

Re: Large keel bolts torque

Hard to find a chart for 304 in that size, alright. This one has numbers for 2" 307, looks like you ought to be around 2250. Those are some beefy bolts!
