How do I go about repairing this as you can see in the pic the bolt is recessed with glass cracking around it and it leaks. This is my fuel tank mount bolt the second pick is the other side. I would like to know the right way of repairing this

I don't think there is supposed to be a screw there. Looks like there was a repair in front of the screw also.
I have never seen anything mounted/bolted through the bottom of the boat others than the intake for the pump.

It's a 74 Hondo jetboat the bolts are  for my fuel tank mounts. It looks like had moved the mount locations before.

My Hondo has through bolted the fuel tank mounts also, I think that was normal for them, on smaller hulls at least.

The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

Mines through bolted. But mine are Allen key domed bolts that they then bondo the dome head in. They work well just gotta redo them every couple years probably from flex.

I think bolts thru the bottom was more common than we would think.
Were you going to fix it yourself or have a shop do it? It should be fixed properly. You don't want any delimitation happening, especially on the bottom.
