  1. I have a new 5200 bottom on my wood boat with a small brass plate above the rudder. Before the new bottom, the rudder was attached to the bottom of the boat with brass carriage bolts set into the wood; however, since there is now a brass plate there, I am thinking about using Silicon Bronze hex bolts to attach the rudder to the boat. Since here is so much turbulence in the area near the rudder/prop shaft, will the hex bolt design cause any issues versus the carriage bolt design?? Thanx, Pete
