Default Kayak repair

I grabbed the side handle of my kayak this afternoon and pulled one end out of the hull. It is a Preception sit on. Is there something out there that is threaded and would flare out behind the wall of the plastic hull. It would have to be similar to hollow wall mollys. I will try the manufacturer on Monday, but I have to believe that I am not the only one to experience this. Any suggestions?

They make plastic rivets that flare like molybolts for kayaks. Not sure about threaded ones.

The original hardware is stainless screws into a stainless receiver. I don't think that the plastic rivets would hold up under the weight, but I'll look into it. Thanks

Also you can plastic weld the hole and redrill if it's bored out too much.

Sorry, I've been busy. I spoke with the factory and they couldn't figure out how this could happen without major damage. So I looked again (wearing glasses this time) and found that the threaded receiver is still there. Apparently during installation the screw was not completely tightened down and had been held in with Loctite. The few threads that were engaged had worked free of the Loctite and gave way. Thanks for the replies.
