Only sure way to know is to remove the bolts and carefully inspect each hole to look for core. If wet and black: hmmm -- options include cutting back and rebuilding dry core. If core is OK: pot with epoxy using the approaches mentioned below and rebuild with backing plates. In addition to a backing plate, some also add a stainless plate under the feet of the stanchion on the deck to spread leverage over a larger portion of the deck, unless the stanchion base is already has a good-sized footprint.
