    I have an 08 SDA 310 with an integrated swim platform. I want to attach my pedestal mount to the swim platform but I’m not sure what the platform is really made of. Should I use screws or drill through to the open space below (accessible from engine compartment) and use bolts?

    I would think you want to bolt through and use a backing plate.

    Yes, through bolts. Screws will pull after some wear. If there is coring, then do as JMD said. If there is not seal it with 4200.

    I do not think his has coring like your platform does.

    Pre-drilled and screwed with self tapping screws and 5200. Solid as a rock.
