Fixing deck hardware

Hi all, I have a 05’ laser hull and one of the screws mounting the deck cleats has oversized the hole in the deck allowing the screw to not grab. What is the right way to repair this?
 
you might try epoxying in a helicoil with the thread size that matches your deck screw. You can get them at Home Depot in the hardware section that has the drawers of different nuts/bolts/etc.

As an alternative, get rid of the deck cleats (and fill up the holes).
