I needed to move my Laser and (stupidly) started dragging it by its traveler rigging. The next thing I knew, I was flat on my back, having ripped the traveler jam cleat out of the deck. Now I have to re-install it. My plan is to fill the old holes with epoxy putty, drill new ones half an inch closer to the back of the cockpit, and then screw the jam cleat into the new holes. I am assuming that there is a wooden backing plate under the area of the deck where it goes that will provide adequate purchase for the screws. This is an old Laser built in the early to mid-1970s. Any advice or comments? Thanks.
