Silicon Bronze Wood Screws
These Silicon Bronze screws have cut threads and the full-bodied diameter shank desired by boatbuilders. Unlike rolled thread screws with their reduced shank--these screws have a shank diameter that is the same size as the outside of the threads. This completely fills the clearance hole normally drilled for the shank thus creating a waterproof seal. These wood screws have a square drive recess to help prevent cam out.

These are to replace the R&P (Frearson) screws in our mahogany boat build. Much easier to work for part fitting and removing during the build.

These are the best screws I found. They aren't perfect. You need a lot of down force to keep them from stripping out. They are designed for boat building so if your outer boat is thick then you probably need to drill it out to a larger diameter to get it too pull tight.

My recommendation is, these screws like other soft metal screws need to have a steel screw run in first before you install the bronze screw. I had trouble with them stripping out. Also you might want to consider running a larger pilot hole thru the first board to keep the screws from grabbing that section and not pulling joints tight. Yes, I did use counter sinks with the correct drill bit and length but still had issues.

Silicone bronze is what they recommend for boat building. They are quite expensive and the square heads do strip out pretty easily, so pre-drilling is a must. That said. they do what they are supposed to do.

These are the first order for screws from Jamestown and probably my last. These screws are very dull and take a lot of effort to screw in my mahogany.
