trim plate lower bolts

87 v8 mercruiser transom plate lower bolts are loose and leaking badly. They have a very large round head on them. Can these bolts be tightened from the outside? I can't budge the nuts from the inside although with the engine still in, there is not much room.

if u can't budge the bolts, how can they be loose? what shape is the transom in? are u sure the leak is around the bolts & not the u joint bellows?
