Teak. Glue and screw?

I ripped up some teak today.
The two worst boards on the entire deck.
Took out 20 screws.
Out of 20:
3 were missing, but had teak plugs capping them.
5 were loose, and when removed, were wet.
15 were tight.
I removed the boards and under them the core and fiberglass are just fine.
So my only real major issue ie screw leakage.

Can i suck the hole dry, epoxy, and run the screw in while its still wet?
Or fill, drill, screw
Or fill, plug, make new hole?
I have 900-1400 to do, plus new calking.
