Thanks Cam, but let me measure for sure in the next weekend or two. I can always get them at West Marine or McMaster-Carr, just have not really focused on it yet.

Those look really good. Glad they are working for everyone as mine did. I'm now designing new tower pads for the 2005 and 2006 towers using a 70 durometer, 3/16" thick polyurethane sheet material. I shouldn't have to replace those damn neoprene factory gaskets again.

West Marine and Mc-Master do not stock the Torx screws. But I personally don't really see a need for the Torx. I think I will just wait for the grommets to get here and go get a Phillips head machine screw that fits. Maybe I will even go for an allen head, if I feel like making it real fancy, since everything else in the boat uses the allen head.

Tom or Neil,

Can you tell me if this screw would work? Pretty much the only consideration is the head size....

Cam -

That should fit. The ID of the grommet where the bolt sits is 0.60".

The through-hole for the bolt is 0.275" so a 1/4" bolt should fit without issue.

I'll need screws too since the PO just installed sheet metal screws into the fiberglass with a big washer (sitting cok-eyed also).
Let us know what you find or come up with if they're not in bulk packs... afterall we only need 3.

Neill, you can easily cut yours down if you need to. Hacksaw to cut to length and a bench grinder to smooth the cut edge to a nice bevel. If you get new ones, send me yours.

I just ordered a pack of these. If anyone wants them, I'll sell them for $1 each shipped to your door.

When I fixed mine a few years ago (with a black rubber grommet), I removed the panel, epoxied into the fibreglass a stainless steel "T" nut. This solved installation issues.

Cameron - I don't have the CAD file or drawing with me. I would say the length is correct. I'd go with nscone's assessment. Gold this fixed the problem. I love mine.
