Looking for 1/4-20 stainless slotted tee bolt (sex bolt)

Hi,
I recently removed the coaming of my 1963 35' Pearson Alberg to strip and varnish them. The bolts that keep the cleats on to the side of the coaming, have cracks. I'm having a heck of a time finding them! I've attached a photo of the bolts (the female part). The cleats are bolted thru and the male end is on the other side of the coaming.
I think these are the original bolts used when the boat was built.
I have a photo of them...but can't post here.

Any suggestions or replacement ideas would be great.
Joy

MSC Direct

or Grainger

or Fastenal
, who will tell you they've never heard of it, then it is out of stock, then ding you $20 for shipping from the next town. The previous two sources are preferred.

Buccaneer18, Grainnia
SJ21, Diarmuid

Jamestown Distributor has them priced at 1/6 the cost of Grainger. I love Grainger but their price on this item is crazy.

We bought all our ss bolts, nuts, washers, etc from Amazon. They have WAY better prices than Home Depot, Ace, or our marina. Add in our prime shipping and they were here in 2 days. Can't be beat.
