"Just because they where there..."
My wife asked me yesterday "why are you putting in all those small screws"? Well, they have no purpose now really, with a "5200 bottom". The 3M5200 adhesive is now holding the inner and outer bottom together. I guess the 1/2" button head screws was put in originally to hold the bottom "sandwich" together, and to add strength to the bottom between the battens and frames.
And since they where there originally, I just had to put them back in....
