Remounting the Mast Base: How thick is the hull of a LS16?

My mast mounting base (the step plate) came loose on my Lone Star 16 dinghy. It is a bit of a blessing as I plan to use the opportunity to install a mast hinge under the step.

The old screws were steel and rusted nearly clean through. They looked like they might have been short wood screws. I don't know how thick my hull is
right there. I need to know how long of screws I can use without punching a hole through the hull.

Does anybody know?

Does anybody have a Lone Star 16 they have remasted, to know how long the screws are?
