I agree with dog. While the chainplate in pics 3 & 4 looks good, the original method used on your boat is probably stronger with a solid bulkhead properly glassed in as it spreads the load over a wider area. Most manufacturers use a method like this because of its strength. Usually they only vary it when the accomodations don't allow it.
As dog said the bulkhead requires proper replacement regardless.
