saladpe is on a distinguished road
They are flat head screws with about 1/2" head. There is no hex shape outer edge to grip a wrench on. From what I can tell, there may not even be a nut on the underside of the deck (which was a little surprising) though it could have supported one. I will see what Home Depot has on electric impact wrenches this evening. So the higher torque will in theory allow the flat head screw bit to turn the screw without stripping? I won't have pictures until I can get to the yard this coming weekend. Its a really nice piece of teak and I have the skills to fix if I can get the thing off the boat. Thank you for the feedback.
