Anthony,
If you have the board stripped down there is an easy way to solve the loose bolt issue – dry the board well (airing cupboard is acceptable as long as you don’t get caught), tape one side of the hole and fill it with epoxy. When dry drill the correct size hole in the epoxy. This also prevents water soaking up the exposed endgrain of the ply in the hole.
I used a bit of thick walled fuel hose from my local discount car parts shop for the brake.
Aren’t you overwhelmed by all this attention?
