I had mine built so that there were 1/4x20 studs that extended from the
bottom of each standoff. This allowed full reuse of the existing holes and
through bolting. Many of the other replacements are a type of 3 screw
flange for the standoffs and straight tubing. I completely dug out the
existing holes and back filled with thickened epoxy before redrilling,
bedding with butyl, and fastening with nylocks.
You will find that the aft most screw on the port side has no access.
After digging holes in my own boat I suggest that you simply cut the screw
off, fill with epoxy, and then leave that single stand off without a stud
for fastening. The stiffness of the tubing and the downward pressure of
the other standoffs will provide all the security and protection needed for
that short unsupported section of rail.
