If the deck is cored there (likely) I'd be very tempted to drill some nice clean 1" holes in the liner below at each throughbolt, rebolt the traveler with fender washers (to the deck proper), and then find some bungs (you can get plastic knockout plugs from an electrical supplier) to close the holes.. it won't look as clean, perhaps, but your traveler will thank you...
The liner, yes! The prior owner moved the traveler and put it here. I'm not sure where it was, although its in a good spot now.

I am sure there is no core there, I can see into the opening when the bolts are out. Your idea is a good one, that had not occurred to me, thanks. But it just seems like it would be more sturdy if I can fill that void.
