How thick is the deck - 2016 Sweetwater 2086BF

How thick is the deck on a 2016 Sweetwater. I need to mount some things to the deck and my boat is 1000 miles away in Maine. Trying to collect all of the hardware I'm going to need before I leave for Maine

    Can't find any specs on that but I would say 3/4"

    I would buy a variety of fasteners, both screws and throughbolt, stainless steel, nylon nut insert, washers. Anything from 1/2 inch to 1.5 inch.

    I visited a dealer yesterday and confirmed Boomers post that the deck is, indeed, 3/4" so after adding the vinyl floor, washers, etc I'm going to go with 1 1/2" long fasteners. And, as CRF suggested, also take along a variety of other hardware.

    Thanks for your help guys.
