That's what a pulled out rivnut looks like. Coaming is back on, gudgeon reinstalled and inspection port secure. Wood backer blocks had fallen off so I had to dig through a small bit of foam to reattach them and secure eyestraps. Luckily they had not wandered off somewhere.

Just curious, in what condition were the wood blocks?
I replace wood backer-blocks with portions cut from a stainless steel shrimp BBQ platter:

Wood blocks were in great shape. I flipped them over, held them in place while father in law drilled pilot holes (made sure drill bit was adjusted so my hand didn't get a pilot hole too). Now that we can access them, the next time we have to go in a metal backer plate would be a better option. I like your repurposing :) What type of hardware did you use, I.e. did you use nuts also or just screws?
