After reading the post about mast base screws I thought I'd better check mine only to discover I now only have one in place. I am going to have to purchase a long screwdriver and some screws, does anyone know the diameter and length of the screws and the thread size?

I have since found out the part number for the screws. Part number for reference is 8030211.
The trouble is Hobie Europe don't have any in stock but can order for the next container delivery in 6-8 weeks.
I can't wait that long before sailing so I have tracked down another supplier in the UK. (Harry Brand - Dundee). 20 screws for £6.00. So when they are delivered I will have a few spare, If anyone this side of the pond needs some let me know and I will post them on. (first come first served).
If you want to order locally in the UK ask for "A4 1/4 UNC" (A4 being 316 stainless steel). As a temporary fix this weekend I am using well greased 1/4 high tensile UNC screws cadged from a machine shop.
