Deck hardware

If the holes are in the same place and the right size and not damaged, they could be reused and sealed with 4200 - BUT, I get the impression that you are talking about screws, and not bolts that go all the way through, in which case you must go the epoxy repair route. I would''nt feel comfortable having that fitting attached with screws and replace them with through bolts and a backing plate. There was a good article by Don Casey about holes in the deck, can''t seem to find it on the sailnet site, but you can see it at http://www.boatus.com/boattech/casey/39.htm
