Depends on how thick the plywood is.

they worked fine for me. im sure the plywood in your boat is think enough. I dont know of many boat makers that use less than 3/4 inch plywood on the decks, even if its a half inch it will hold fine. Im a machinist and the rule of thumb with threads is that if you get three full threads in whatever, it should hold. But of course there are sometime exceptions.

Use the screws that came with them.....they will hold in the plywood just fine. I have four sets of four HyTeks mounted that way...no problems.
