Sorry , I'm still not clear on the process.
If I place the fitting in the hole, there's no way I can insert epoxy in it. There's less than a millimeter of space between the fitting and the hole walls and no way to push the epoxy 8 cm along the length of the fittings screw . The epoxy will have to be inserted into the hole before the fitting is inserted.

If the top and inside of the hole is sound, forget the epoxy. Just lag the threads, flange and the inside of the hole with sealant and insert the fitting. Put some more sealant on the underside surface, place the washer on it, and bolt up.

Once the sealant has cured, it will not move.

You can do the same thing using the epoxy, as you have it already.

You can then make good the damaged surface on the underside of the deck-head. When dry, apply some gel-coat or paint.

The hole is uncompromised . The newly welded screw actually threaded in the whole but does have slight play in it.
I'm ok with both the sealant or epoxy method. I wonder which will make it easier to remove in the future. Probably the sealant?

As for the underside of the deck , do you mean between the ceiling and the deck? There, only foam was removed. Should it be renewed ?

The opening I made in the ceiling should be kept for future access, yet I'm not sure what solution should be applied there, as I wish the hole to be covered after all. Resealing it with mat and resin would now allow access of course and a ceiling board cannot be fitted there

Thank you
