Sorry, I was assuming that you wanted a stainless CAP SCREW.
If this would work for you, follow my instructions IN ORDER, and you'll get there. The clever use of Perl by McMaster-Carr prevents me from posting a direct link.

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

The winch is countersunk so I would prefer to go with a counter sink bolt. I dont think there is room for a washer in there.

Trdesman says they'll check around but doubts it. All they had were one inch.

Yea, I dont want to go that small really. Would rather go up to a 3/8 in which they only go up to 4"

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

Could you (would you want to) make some with a stainless all-thread rod?

Re: I'm having trouble finding hardware

Try calling Fawcetts Marine in Annapolis. They bought Chesapeake Fastener and have always had what I was looking for and in small quantities. Good luck!

Could, and would if I were working. All my tools are at the shop but a little akward going up there when I am laid off. I'm just going to chop off and inch off the block(I would rather them be lower anyway) and order 6 inch 3/8 from mcmaster. Appreciate the advice

Probably stronger & cheaper to do that. How is the wood protected from the elements? I've seen butyl tape mentioned a lot recently; will it be part of your bedding process? Any photos?

Stay cool and hydrated.
