Cheapeake Light Deck Carrying Handle Came Off

Carrying my 6-year old boat for about the 500th time and carrying handle came out--screws and all.  (Luckily caught the boat so no damage.)

What's best way to reattacjreplace? 

Fill the holes w/thickened epoxy and rescrew, seal those holes, and drill new ones, or use different handles altogether?

Thanks

RE: Cheapeake Light Deck Carrying Handle Came Off

Is there any way to reach in, maybe with something to extend your reach, and epoxy or glue in a fitted piece of wood as a backing board? Then fill in your holes and drill new holes.

Another option is if you have an end pour that you could drill through and put a loop through. My only end pour was just in the tip of the bow & I used a lot of silica &/or wood flour as filler. Then I drilled through that. In the stern I had fixed a scrap of wood during construction as a backing plate.
