Default Anchor Roller Bar on 2800scr

I have a 2000 2800scr in which I am changing out the anchor roller bar and have a question before I get started on the project. The current anchor roller bar is held to the hull via 3 bolts from the top fastened under the hull with three nuts. Does anyone know if the three nuts below are permeantly attached to the hull or not. The issue is if the nuts are not attached, how in the world does one attempt replace the nuts down there. The roller bar sits on the bow point "needle" which is about 4 and half feet away from the access hole in the cabin. My arms are not long enough to reach it and I don't have any munchins hanging around that I can stick in there to hold the nuts in place.

Any suggestions would be helpful.

I was afraid of that. I guess I need to find some local midgets to assist me, so I can stuff them through the cabin access panel.

I had to take down a small cuddy-thingy and a panel on the port side of the v berth in order to get the panel off between the v birth and the anchor locker. The hole in the bulkhead is much larger than the hatch into the anchor locker. There's still very little room up there. I had to pre stage my tools by going in leading arm first, then 'feel' around for everything. it was not fun.

I had a similar case on my last boat installing a Radar Arch. I taped a wrench to a pole then loosly taped the nut and washer to the wrench. I then reached up from the inside while someone on the out side turned the screw, when it was tight I was able to pull the wrench off the nut.I did this six times with great success.
Good luck
