If you cant access below the motor to bolt it with fender washers and nylock nuts, use these instead of the rubber shock absorbers.

If you want the rubber shock absorbers, They are called isolator bolts and can usually be found at Academy

Go buy some rubber pieces about 1" thick place under mount and use the fender washers and the existing bolts it will not get loose again and very quite did mine about five years ago no problems you can get the rubber pieces out of Fort Worth rubber

The rubber base/isolators required that a larger hole be drilled, and they were likely installed by simply expanding the rubber in the hole - not with a backing washer and bolt. Here's what I've done to boats (for the last 20+ years) that had such an installation:

the isolators have a nut embedded in the shank. You're going to cut that off - we're converting to a thru-bolt installation. Put the isolator in the hole on the boat. With under-deck access, use a razor knife to mark the shank of the isolator at the deck thickness underneath. Remove them and make a nice perpendicular cut to shorten the isolator so it does not protrude under the deck. Next, install good stainless bolts of the proper diameter/length, using stainless fender washers and locknuts underneath the deck.

The result is you have full isolation, yet the solid rigidity of a thru-bolt solution. Snug them down, but don't torque them too heavily or you'll destroy the isolator pad. Tighten until you see each start to bulge a bit. Another thing: to have the mount less likely to be twisted and bind, tighten the bolts evenly and sequentially in a X pattern as you snug them down - not one at a time all the way.
