I took a photo and am trying to upload it from my ipad, hope it works.

The 2.5 inch screw is a 9 guage i think. The 3 inch screw would then be a 8 guage. Today i found a place that sells 3.5 inch 10 guage SS screws. Overkill?

Yep, That would do it!
I might try to shift the hole over a touch so the new screw is getting a better bite on firm wood.
