Front motor mount lag bolts loose, stripped?!?!? *Newbie*
Just finished winterizing my boat and noticed that one of the motor mount lag bolts was loose and had worked itself out about two threads. I tightened it up and felt like it was stripped. The other front motor mount lag bolt was the same way.
This leads me to a few important questions:
1. Does my boat have an all fiberglass transom? Or is it also made with wood?
I backed out both front motor mount lag bolts and did not see wood or sawdust on the ends. My proposed fix; drilling out slightly larger holes, using strong epoxy to permanently glue some HD concrete anchors in place to catch the lags?
2. What is the best way to check for transom rot?
Many thanks for your replies.
