Question: How do I use these deck screws to attach the plywood to my pontoon boat's frame?
Answer: All pontoon boats use aluminum cross-members or stringers to connect the tubes of the pontoon. Your plywood decking sits on top of these cross-members and creates the floor for your boat. Our pontoon deck screws are designed to be spaced 16" apart and run down through your plywood and aluminum cross-members. Use a heavy-duty drill with a #2 square head bit or a #3 phillips. No pre-drilling is required though it does make it easier for customers who do not have powerful enough drills to pre-drill a small hole through the plywood and aluminum frame.
Question: What size are these screws?
Answer: 5/8" head, 2" overall length with a 1/4" self tapping bit. Thread size is 1/4" x 1.875".
Question: Can these pontoon deck screws be used in salt water.
Answer: Yes, all of our pontoon hardware is saltwater rated. We use heavy duty Xylan coated deck screws because they are stronger than stainless and will not snap off when screwing down through plywood and aluminum.

I am turning a pontoon into a dock and putting deck boards instead of plywood...will these work as well and if so how many will be required?
I believe these should work as long as they are long enough for the installation you are using. As far as how many, usually 1 bag of 100 would do the job with the Pontoon Decking.

The Pontoon Boat Deck Screws will work on stell cross members. You do not have to pre-drill a pilot hole but it is recommended.

We cannot send samples. But I can tell you that we have not had any issues with customers. These are the standard size for most pontoon boats.
Can these be used to install your table mounts?
Yes. Though since they are Xylan Coated they will not match the "chrom finish" of the Table Mounts.
If you were to pre-drill a pilot hole, what Ã would you recommend for the tapping hole? ( Existing #10's are pulling out)
We use 1/4 #20. This should help you determine which size to use for the Deck Screws.
