Default T-Top floor mount repair advice requested

Ok, I had a local guy put a tee top on my World Cat @ 4 years ago. It is a great design and was built like a brick house. Unfortuneately, the two front support posts ( floor mounted) have become loose from the deck. It appears he installed them with 5200 and some heavy duty ss self tapping screws. The holes are all worn out. I tried to fill them with glass matting dipped in epoxy. Stuffed it in the holes, let it set, re-drilled and re-installed the screws. The are already coming loose after 5 trips. At this point, I am considering ss toggle bolts. Has anyone installed these in this application? Any other tips? I was just gonna drill the holes out, install the toggle bolts and then stuff some 5200 in the holes before I tighten them all the way. I am, however, open to suggestions.
