Halyard Roller and Halyard Roller Bracket

Hello, Anyone have any issues with Halyard Rollers and Halyard Roller Bracket?

These are not Halyard Lead Blocks. Halyard Roller Brackets are in between deflector blocks and halyard lead blocks. I've attached some pictures to show you what I'm talking about. I think it is compensation for a design flaw. The boat in question is a 2003 Hunter 386.

There is a deck cover that goes over halyards and sheets from the cockpit, mid-deck, to the mast. Underneath that deck cover is what the boat manual deck hardware list calls a halyard roller and a halyard roller bracket.

The purpose for these parts is to hold the halyards and sheets DOWN so they don't rip up the foremost part of that deck cover piece when putting loads on the halyards and sheets.

The halyard roller bracket assembly is made up of a SS bar that is 1/4" wide, 7" long, has six 1 inch delrin rods (rollers) with holes drilled into each roller length-wise that the SS bar slips into along with 3 SS brackets. Each bracket has two holes that get secured to the deck with SS screws. Originally screwed into the deck and not secured with a washer or nut. (That's 6 more holes in the top of the boat.)

That part of the deck does not have any wood core to it. All fiberglass.

What happened is, over the years, there was so much pressure put on the halyard bracket, the brackets lifted off the deck and sealant and when it rained or a wave washed over the deck, water came through the top of the deck, through the bracket screw holes and into the cabin/salon.

So, my thoughts are to secure the halyard roller brackets better by laying more glass(strengthen the area?), adding SS washers and SS nylon nuts to each screw on the bracket under the deck and sealing with silicone adhesive (or caulk?). Or, cut that deck cover back to just forward of the deflector blocks and glass over the 6 bracket holes and call it a day. Please let me know any thoughts you may have. Thanks.
