Most of the sails with hanks now in smaller boats use spectra webbing and a velcro to secure it in place.  I'm sure your sailmaker and sort you out

Why not just put a nut on the inside of the hull?  You could weld the bolts to the flange so then it is only a one man job to tighten the flange.  I would also create an internal backing plate to not deform the hull.


Realistically though if it worked for decades why not clean off the sealant and just redo what was done the first time?
