I bought some spares when we got our boat as we had to lower the tower every time
putting boat on lift (not necessary now). I think I picked up SS ones at either Home Depot
or Menards.2008 Outback V

I have always wanted wing nut tops on my rada-a-cage bolts so I could do it by hand. Never actually looked.If you believe something to be true, it will be - in it's consequences.

It is a 3/8" 16 bolt on my rada-a-cage. One of my jobs over the winter is to replace the stripped threads in one of mine with new helicoils.2007 Moomba LSV

I'd definitely go with Stainless like Joe recommended. I had to replace a few broken bolts on a board rack, was in a hurry and just used standard, maybe even grade 8. Couple years down the road now (forgot to swap them) and they are rusted in there pretty good... Luckily it's steel to aluminum contact but if I need to take the racks off at some point I will probably have to drill them out.The years have been kind, it's the weekends that have done the damage.

I wold also advise put something like anti sieze, on something simular on the bolts. We use a ton of SS bolts at work and the worst is when they gall up a thread, they basically weld them selves in. Use a little lube or something and prevent this.Malo <--- Means--Evil or Mean One. This explains a lot.
