~~~A fun time, had taken my Widdle Gween Machine over to a guy Bowmanville on Saturday AM to weld the crack in the lower part of the bow, and he did a great job, at a great price, calls me at 5:30 says I can come and get my baby, so I did. Got up Sunday AM to start screwing down the Deck, some screws went in easy and others were a pain. Biggest problem I have is it's an American made boat, ad the Screws are a #8 stainless steel with fine threads, and a flat Philips head. I was hoping to gets some extra, screws but we live in Canada, and we only use Robinsons headed screws. I also need a extra 5" on my arm, so I can bolt down the Bow Plate.

Don't ever bitch about Robin screw head fasteners. Never a better screwdriver fastener head made
My Bass Cat is a rare American made vessel that use Robinson head fasteners.

I've always used Robertson screws (stainless) when working on boats. Phillips or Standard are garbage because they are proned to slip especially ifthey are slightly corroded. You can findthem in the same sizes at Home Depot, Home Hardware and some Canadian Tire stores.
