    :agree: We deal with a slightly different standard of bolt in the structural steel industry, however strength characteristics are very similar. A grade 5 bolt has the same basic chemical and physical strengths and properties as an A325 structural bolt which is used in the vast majority of structural connections of any steel building. Grade 8 bolts are comparable with the rarely used A490 bolt, which are used in situations to sustain large dynamic loading. The chemical makeup of a grade 8 bolt is such that it makes it more brittle than that of a grade 5, therefore it is more susceptible to brittle fracture than a grade 5. A grade 5 bolt with a tensile strength of 120,000psi and yield strength of 92,000psi is quite adequate to sustain the loads applied in this friction type connection. Just my :2cents: though, which means about this much..:flush: :oldhardlaugh:

    Thank you this has been very helpful I need bolt number 9 also upon looking further I also need the washer and I believe that there is a rubber grommet that goes inside of their stopping the boat from going all the way through
