Rot is evident around the coach bolts (we call em carriage bolts, also fixings… an interesting term, I’d likely get some funny looks this side of the pond if I use it!).  It’s good to know that glue joints alone have worked too and that does avoid the rot around the bolts.  The glue joint from upper skeg to transom was still in good condition and it took careful prying to separate it last week even after the bolts where removed.
