Was it screwed to the deck?

If yes, get a length of 1/4" aluminum bar stock, drill holes in it matching your traveller, epoxy nuts underneath the holes, repair the holes in the deck (see other threads on bedding deck hasrdware), re-drill the deck, then slide the bar under the deck and screw the traveller to bar.

Certified...in several regards...

You glue the bolts to the underside.
