Shroud Supports; chain plates

So I had a really nice post going that got dropped by this message board. I have to say the controls here really leave a lot to be desired especially around image handling. It's 2020 I wonder why it's still so very bad!?! Anyway, is this normal? I've got bare bolts where there should be washers and nuts -- these are the 'chain plates' for the shrouds. Seems super weird to me. Could be fastened out of sight within the fiberglass. Looking to confirm.

So the shrouds are pulling directly up on those bolts? I would guess you're missing hardware. I won't climb into my cabin to confirm, sorry. I would add a fender washer and a nylock nut to each. It couldn't hurt, right?

That's precisely what I was thinking -- what could it hurt to throw some washers and nylon nuts on there? There is some epoxy on the end of the bolts and they look like they've never had nuts on them -- so I assume it's been this way from new, but better to be safe than sorry I guess!
