Get from hardware stores where they can provise the quality i.e. stainless steel fastners. Here's what I also use: Marie consgnment stores. They have used parts at good prices. Look for boat equipment swap meets, here in Seattle the local sailing rag sponsors them. West Marine/Boat US have two surplus stores one in Oakland and the other I think in Miami. Carry a list of what you need and measurements so that you can leap on an opportunity if it pops up.

Be aware that many hardware stores only carry the cheaper, less rust resistant stainless steel, rather than marine grade 304/316 stainless steel nuts and bolts. An easy way to determine if the stuff is marine-grade stainless steel is to carry a magnet. Marine grade austenitic stainless steels are NON-MAGNETIC.

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.

Just don't carry that magnet next to your credit cards or you won't be able to purchase that bargain.

Lots done since last year. Last winter, I made a new tiller. First I laminated a bunch of 1/8" plywood at the right swoop (shape):


Once dry I cut out a tiller shape:


Then sanded it to final shape:

Lots of varnish:


I sail.

I can't believe I just stumbled on this thread for the first time. 50 pages, where have I been? Beautiful job. I'm going to grab a beer and start at the beginning.
