Just purchased a beautiful h37c only issue is as soft deck spot at the forward starboard cleat. It’s about 2ft by 2ft area. The cleat now wiggles, suggestions please

And on my 1983 boat there are midship cleats just forward of the shrouds and bow cleats along the toe rail, 18" aft of the chocks. If I have learned anything by keeping the database all these year, its than no two H37C boats are alike!Trying to picture where that would be. On my 1983 boat there are no cleats forward of the companionway...
I know this is an old thread but I have to redo parts of the deck of my Jeanneau Attalia ( on Lake Ontario)…And I had assumed it would be epoxy over polyester . Given my readings, ( including this thread) I’m on the fence but would go with either ( looks like polyester) . But then what about esthetics? People don’t talk about trying to match either the colour or as importantly the non-skid pattern. Do you just mismatch or try and blend something . Certainly to redo the entire deck is not the way to go…Having rebuilt many decks and having owned two Cherubinis, I highly recommend the excise and replace method. It is generally easier to replace the top skin with new glass than to re-use the original. Polyester wins over epoxy on this repair due to cost, time and ease of use. I also find it more versatile and it is plenty strong. Yes, epoxy is stronger, but is massive overkill for this application. If my boat were in the Atacama Desert or a dehumidified building rather than the frozen north, I would go the drill and inject technique. Where I live, the rest of the core would rot away long before drying out.
