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.
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.
