    Also, the sheaves are bronze, not brass. It may be wise to use the proper metal for the pin to avoid a metal mismatch and worse oxidation in the future.

    Nasty aluminum bolts on my nice boat

    Aha! Yes! Now it makes sense. Aluminum, not "rotted steel". Maybe I can slice them off at deck level with a hacksaw blade, or something.

    Good Way, Maybe not

    More than likely you will have to try to drive them out from below. They shouldn't be threaded into the base. They were likely sealed when installed,
