Sounds like you already know how to do it the right way but if you decide against that which also sounds like you already have, you could try expanding the area to which the cleat grabs by digging out the surface glass, filling with marine ply and epoxy covered by X glass layers and re-gell/paint.

Sometimes cleats are an integral safety piece when used to retrieve an errant overboard swimmer.
