Ok I'm about done with tear down and getting ready to re-deck etc.  Got all my stuff picked out sitting in cart.  The original deck (godfrey) has black stuff at joints.  I'm guessing deck tape.  

Don't see a lot on here about deck tape.  Should I go back with deck tape.

Also decks are bolted down not screwed.  Still working though how I"m going to line up the holes guessing I'd have to mark the holes, pick up wood, drill & put it back down but the chance for error there is huge.  Or drill new holes or use decking screws.  

Any suggestions.  Thanks.

I would use the deck tape. It seals the joint where the plywood butts up to. I used the self tapers from Pontoonstuff.com.
