Will epoxy glue pvc to metal

The deck fill for my water tank places the screws that secure the fill plate to the deck too close to the edges of the hole. When the screws are installed, they do not get good purchase. I want to seal the edges of the hole with epoxy and make the hole smaller (with glass & resin) so the screws can get a good grip on the deck. The problem is that if I do that, the hose clamps will not then fit thru the hole. I really need a deck fill with a longer tail piece, but failing that, I was wondering if I could epoxy the plastic hose to the metal tailpiece and eliminate the hose clamps?
