Should I re-tap the thread?
My rear bolt from the intake grate falls off. It lost the thread and now the hole is a bit bigger than the factory size. I would need to go at least 1-2 sizes bigger. Now, can I re-tap this hole? What size? Then, the other 2 with the brass inserts that keep coming off, what can I do about that? Can I epoxy them inside the hole?
I'd hate to have to take the ski to the shop again for this

Really, u should take it back and make them fix it . You paid a lot for hull work, and It should be they're headache not yours.

But I would rather go through this headache than the headache of driving about 45 miles to get there in the crazy Miami/Ft. Lauderdale traffic man
If I have too, I will trust me, but looking for an easier way out.

You know I`ve seen this on this site many times now. Knock on wood, that it hasn`t happened to me. But I think I would try a riv-nut over all of this here. First and formost I`d see if the warranty would cover though.
