This is probably a long shot since this is existing construction, but could you drop the floor of the shower so that you do not need a curb?
Or could you reduce the thickness of the wall opposite...

I think I know the answer before I ask it, but nothing ventured nothing gained.
An older deck, not well maintained, constructed with PT 2x6 yellow pine lumber. As to be expected the decking...

Sounds as if this is over and above that required per code? If the number of bolts you have already installed have been inspected and meet code, why do you need to have any additional bolts...

The only negative comment, and it is simply a personal...
