15-footers: List of All Fasteners and All Hardware; List of Vendors Selling On-line All Listed Hardware Items

Postby dyoung16611 » Sun Sep 19, 2021 10:21 am

[Seeks] lists detailing all hardware and fasteners used on classic 15-foot models and on-line vendors that sell them.

I realize this will differ depending on model configuration.

BACKSTORY
I have a 1983 STRIPER 15. 3 Striper. I am reconfiguring the boat to include the original console with fore and aft thwart bench seats. I need to purchase all the screws, hinges, finish washers, and any other hardware needed to install the original components on the boat, including [navigation lamps], side rails, console, side boards, thwart seats, fuel tank, battery tie downs, throttle, console rod holder, bimini top, fuel-water separator, windshield, rivets for capacity plate, HID plate and rub rail, anchor locker scupper covering through-hull, bow light junction box, engine mounting bolts.

Q1: have I missed anything?

I need a list giving details of screw sizes, types, length, diameter, pitch, and quantities.

I need a list giving recommended on-line retailers who sell these items.

Jim, I absolutely will!
Phil - thanks for this list and for your reply. I appreciate it very much!
I wasn't clear in my post. In the course of stripping the boat down in preparation for painting, all screws and fasteners for the hardware I removed have been inadvertently discarded. I have the hardware, I need the mounting fasteners. It's possible I'm the only guy in this predicament. If so and no one has a list, I'll share what I come up with in case anyone else is in need. Thanks!
