Hi Chris,
The 2000 F-155 used pretty standard 6mm x 1.0mm x 28 mm PT (Plastics Technology) footstrap
screws.
Most windsurf shops should still carry some of them.
If you cannot find them. let us know here and we may be able to come up with a set of them.
There are 2 reasons the Phillips heads could be worn.
#1 Some one used a power tool (probably with the wrong size bit) to install them originally.
#2 Someone used a damaged, or the wrong size Phillips screwdriver to tighten them.
It takes a #3 Phillips high quality heat treated tip screwdriver.
Any other tool just tears up the Phillips recess and geometry and makes a mess of the
screw heads.
