What boat?

If the Mac 25 are we talking pivot pin or lock down bolt?

For the bigger stuff that the local hardware doesn't have, I go to wholesalebolts.com or boltdepot.com. Between the two they have darn near everything, both SAE and metric.

For your pivot pin I'd look for 17-4 PH stainless steel bolts, if you can find the size you need. McMaster carries some sizes. I don't know what your lock down bolts are on your boat.

I made my own gasket once for the pivot pin on a balboa 26. I made a dam out of masking tape around the edges of a washer and filled it in with goop. See picsgasket.jpggasket2.jpggasket3.jpg
