There are snaps on the cabin deck for our dodger. They are a snap with a small wood screw in the center that goes into our cabin top.

Uh oh! A couple have come out. Of course you can't just rescrew them because the hole is only slightly larger now. Any suggestions on the best way to reinstall? Should I use some sort of epoxy in the holes and then rescrew?

A couple years ago I redid all my dodger snaps and attachments. They were not bedded properly when initially installed. Drilled each hole out oversized, filled with epoxy, then drilled a pilot hole for the screw. Used a bit of chalk on each screw when reinstalled. All seem to be holding nicely.
Why the chalk?
