I might have an extra one that will work till you can order a new one. I'll take a look around.

Oh wait, that's the OBV. I was going to match up on mine (LSV), but I think yours are different. Can you tell me the length and thread size? I think I have two different ones left over from an old aftermarket tower. I will still look around.

Did you try the dealer?

Fastenal has just about every size and kind of bolt/screw you can find. You might try them?

I'm so sorry. I went through all 3 boxes of the old boat parts I have around. What I did when I sold the O/B is I gave the guy a whole box of stuff he might need. I'm sure now I let all those extra parts go. Age is affecting the memory I guess.

I tried calling the dealer and got the run around if any one has ever oredered these screws and know the length and width of them let me know I can order them at mcmaster.com just need the dimensions

ditto what vikking said Fastenal has all the fasteners and SS screws nuts bolts etc.

any of these close.

If you know the exact size i will stop and pick you up a few and send them.
