Okay so as I pulled the boat apart this weekend in order to search for, well lets just say out of curiosity. I have noticed the hinge on my ski locker being loose. So I removed the screws from the door and removed the door. Now what do I put into the existing holes to insure the new screws would hold. I assumed some sort of epoxy?? But not really sure any advise.

Are you sure they're screws or are the hinges thru bolted like the motorbox hinges?

They're screws. Pulled those out of the floor side first. Noticed all 6 of those were secure. When the screws fell right out of the hinge plate and door. I thought. Hummmm... So I figured a filler, let it dry, drill pilot hole then replace screws and be done.

Can you up the size of the screw by one?

Fiberglass repair goop. Or just shove a bit of zip tie in the hole.
