Stainless steel fastener set

I'd like to get a little set of stainless steel fasteners to keep on the boat - nuts, washers, bolts /setcrews. Anyone know a good source? West Marine have one but it's a little steep.

Our local hardware store sells SS fasteners in blister packs- I put together an assortment of #6, #8, #10 screws, 1/4" machine screws, nuts and washers for less than $25, including splurging $5 on the case.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere:

Find a place that sells bulk stainless fasteners. The price will be better, especially than the blister packaged ones. For really popular sizes that you might use often, like 3/4" #8 possibly, buy 100 and save even more. I purchase bulk screws and nuts/bolts at good prices at my local marine store - not West Marine - and when I buy a box of 100 I save almost half again.

No kits that I know of, but Ace hardware has a nice selection of stainless fasteners.
