Thanks for sharing.

And that is odd that they were cutting the bolts.  I could see if they were rusted solid or messed up.

That's the military way.  The national guard guys were using hammers to rip out planks on the far aft deck.

Now he have to find more weather-resistant bolts that are the same size as the current bolts.  Does anyone still make brass bolts like that?
