P bracket slightly loose

I own a 1986 Beneteau First 29 lift keel, when I dried it out last week I noticed the P bracket was slightly loose in its fixing socket.
As a short term fix I was wondering wether I should bolt thru inside the hull to stop it dropping out? And wether I could drill a hole inthe cross piece strengthening at the top and squirt in epoxy to secure it?

I have a Beneteau Tech Notice concerning the repair of the Struts for the First series yachts. You cannot yet send private messages but if you will send your email address to one of the moderators and ask him/her to forward it to me I will send you a copy of the notice that will allow you to make the proper repairs. It's not too difficult but is awkward and a pain in the neck (literally). Alternately go to the Beneteau Forum on Boatowners.com and you may be able to find a copy of the notice for yourself.

Hi guys,

Just bring this one back as I have literally this weekend dried out also and notice my P Bracket is also loose. Very loose actually.

I'd be keen to here how yous was fixed and if you have that tech notice.

Mine is a sing keel Beneteau First 26.
