Replacing Cleats

I had the unfortunate event of a cleat being ripped out of the fiberglass this year. Found out there are no backing plates or washers on any cleats on my boat.

Number one priority is to get backing plates on them. However, I am beginning to think I actually want to replace them. I am currently using 3/8" dockline and it barely fits in between the cleats.

Any suggestions on which size/type of cleats to go with? Am I getting into a large project in replacing all of them?

Broken cleat:
