im installing a pedestal seat in my 15 Striper. I know the wood in the hull is 1/2 inch. How long should the screws be to attach the pedestal base?

I would use s/s through bolts, nuts and washers.... screws will come loose after a while...

I would use #12 pan head s/s sheet metal screws About 1 1/2 inches long. Pick up a small tube of 3M 5200 adhesive sealant, and drill new holes (don't use the old holes), fill them with the sealant, and attach the pedestal. They will never come loose.
Always keep things simple.

Use a countersink to chamfer the hole after drilling. It will help prevent hairline cracks radiating out from the hole.
