Good source of U-Bolts

I need a stainless steel U-Bolt, .25 inch diameter at the bend (I think it is called the A measurement) and threads of at least two inches in length (the D measurement?). A breaking strength of at least 2000 lbs.

I tried defender.com and a couple of others. It seems the standard length of thread for this diameter is 1 7-8".

Anyone have an idea where I can find the size I need?

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

The best place to get all the bolts you need is Bolt Depot - Nuts and Bolts, Screws and Fasteners online
I have placed about six orders with them and never been disappointed.
