I put around 50no. 6mm woodscrews with finishing washers plus Sikaflex in my console. problem is if all the screws are going in to half an inch of soggy plywood its still liable to rip off.
I bonded a 2x1" hardwood batten to the underside of the floor where all the screws for the seats and console were going to be. I wonder how many "professional" boatbuilders go to the same lengths?
