Here are some photos I took yesterday. I took the pictures through the door the previous owner cut in the bulkhead. You can see the tips of the screws poking through the bottom of bridgedeck. I believe there is a tapping plate embedded in the bridgedeck. It would be pretty well impossible to put nuts and washers here without removing the engine first!

I had a jib track pull out of the deck. All the screws were self tappers except the ones at the end. There I found a stainless plate embedded in the deck. It appears that is how the mainsheet track is fastened too.

So this suggests two ways to fix this. First drill out the old threads to the next tap drill size and tap new threads in the plate. Then drill out the traveler holes and countersinks for the new larger screws.

The second way would be to install thread inserts. See McMaster-Carr
part # 97120A220 as an example. You drill out to the tap size for the insert, tap the hole and install the inserts, then use the same bolts as previously.

Hope this helps

I wouldn't use threaded inserts, since the potential for galvanic corrosion is much higher...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Stainless inserts, in a stainless plate, with stainless screws. Where do you see a problem?
