Screws, nails and fasteners should be approved for pressure treated lumber. PT lumber is very corrosive. I'm assuming your using PT lumber for your floor joists.... screws generally hold much better.

FYI

And at $99, not a bad price. If we didn't already have a Lil' Red Campfire, I'd be getting one.

So buy a couple and take them to Goshen. I'm sure if you also furnish the 20# cylinders of propane that the folks would appreciate them.

I'm sure FT Turbs would let you look in his borrowed/stolen beer cooler and maybe, just maybe let you have one, especially if they were borrowed or stolen if you took one over to him for the length of the rally. But of course you would have to keep the propane tank full for him.

How to Dock Your Ship

There is a place in India where they cut up and scrap old ships for the metal in them. They simply pull the vessel up on shore and start dismantling it. Here's a primer on how to get your vessel docked so it can eventually be scrapped...
