Exclamation Where are the caps hiding?

I'm going a little crazy trying to find these little plactic nut covers. Basically, most of the through-deck fittings have them but i'm missing a few and have been to all the local sources with no luck. Anyone know of a website that sells them?

Comes in various brands and compounds. colors also.

They're called Snap Caps and Waste Marine sells them (no doubt among others.) Check their catalog or website.

I'd use the Plasti-Dip instead of the Snap Caps, as they'll cover different sized bolts and it is going to cost a lot less than the snap caps over all.

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.
