You can get Stainless steel rivnuts, I have used them to fit gas struts in the past so they work well in the right application.

Stainless Steel Rivet Nuts

I don't know if I would use them on GRP though...

How about a picture? How much depth do you have to work with? Is there a big enough area to fit a backing plate in then patch it. The pulpit might cover the repair.
