Don't forget if you plan to do it at the lake . . . if you're using an electric staple gun or an air gun with compressor you will need a power source.
- don't know if an inverter off the vehicle battery would run a staple gun
- otherwise, a portable generator or another AC source and a long extension cord

My bolts spun.

Since I was replacing the bunk boards and carpet I just cut the boards on both sides of the bolts with a circular saw then smashed the remaining wood out with hammer and chisel. Then I held the bolts with vise grips to loosen. A couple were stubborn so I just used the 4" grinder to cut them.

Nice stress relief.
