Swan 47 Cabin Table Installation

Please see attached pictures of the cabin sole to which the table is bolted. I would like some comments if this is the original installation. When I bought the boat last year, the table was very loose and the floorboard screws had pulled out of the fiberglass. I installed new larger screws but some have again pulled out. Any ideas how to improve this installation are welcome. Thanks!

Dear Toronto Till

It is suggested you install Helicoil thread inserts into the fiberglass for improved screw holding power. 
Kind regards
