7" Stainless Steel Screw, Anyone?

We have removed our genoa tracks because the heads were popping off the screws-yikes- and now are having trouble finding replacements. Anybody know where we can find 1/4-20 x 7" Stainless Steel flat-head machine screws? We need 74. A 6mm x 190mm would also work. If you can point us in the direction of a supplier, I'd be grateful. I've checked Defender, Hamilton, Jamestown, West Marine, Bolt Depot, MSC, and about a hundred others....

I think you want an industrial/commercial fastener supply house. I think you definitely don't want to pay for 74 stainless steel "marine" screws, 1/4-20 x 7" (See the thread "We're getting hosed" for the reason why.)

Believe there was a thread on long screws about two weeks ago that you should look for. .

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.
