I would say that's mostly up to you, but I wouldn't go much larger than a #8 screw, personally. Spacing is going to be mostly irrelevant, but probably would be nice to have something every foot or 18 inches. I personally don't like the look of the stuff so I built my boat without hardware, but again, go with what looks good to you. The hardware isn't really necessary at all for structural integrity or anything like that, it just makes it easier to install the deck. So go with what is aesthetically pleasing to you.
