You could replace the regular snaps with a twist lock since the base on the twist lock is larger it will cover the original hole from the old snap that will no longer be used. You would need to fill the old hole and drill two new holes for the twist lock snap. Be sure to countersink the new holes before putting the screws in so you will not lift the gel coat. Also the twist lock tools are needed to cut the snap hole in the canvas. The old snap is most likely attached with a sheet metal screw although it could be through bolted with a machine screw and nut (not likely but possible).
