Legs?

Does anyone have legs for fin keelers?
"Sarabande" has, but I havent used them in anger yet, she leans ok against harbour walls.
Reason for asking is that the stbd through hull fastening to bolt the leg on is missing and I cannot deduce from the port hand one the make up, as it is glassed in, all I can see is a bulge of resin in the forward cabin.
I presume it would be a threaded type bolt inner and outer and the outer head is profiled for a domed smooth finish. threaded outer for tightening a large nut then glassed over inside the cabin?
