Usually the SR a frames bolt through the transom, at least mine and others ive seen do, I can tell you how the studs for the transom reinforcing bars are held down though as i have just refitted mine, perhaps you coild use the same fixings?
The stud is attached to a 1.5" square pad of perforated stainless which is epoxied to the wooden deck, this is covered with a piece of ply about 4"x2" epoxied over the top so the stud sticks through it, then a layer of mat and flowcoat over the top.
most of the raised platforms on a searider with a stud sticking out are like this, its bloody strong way of doing it!
