I can't through bolt them because of damage to the boat and counter sinking them wouldn't leave much material left since it is 3/4" plywood. Any thoughts?
If the wood is sound, peel off the carpet (or a patch of carpet), install stainless T-nuts, then glue the carpet back down.

T-nuts - great idea! I think you are talking about the kind that have teeth to bite into the wood to keep from spinning. I will try that if these screws stop holding again. I might also try drilling more holes in the fender to put more screws in. It doesn't seem like there is enough factory drilled holes.

Finally got this done!

Here's my results of finally getting around to doing this. Had to drill some additional holes in fenders, used t-nuts and stainless 3/4" long screws. I just stapled the carpet around the boards and I'm happy with the results.
