Default Best Company to purchase 316 SS Nuts, etc. from?

What company has the largest selection and best pricing for 316 stainless steel acorn nuts, nuts, bolts, washers, etc. on line?

Replacing everything on the boat and would like to get what I need from an individual supplier, if possible.

Seattle Nut and Bolt

Pricing, quality and availability. The mostly serve the aerospace industry. You can tell the difference by looking at one of their bolts vs Fastenal.

I do appreciate the reply but Marsh is cheaper.
They just don't carry everything I'm looking for.

You can't give me Fastenal stainless.
Been there and done that on my last boat.
Bolts, screws, etc. started to rust within months causing major gel coat staining.

I was going to offer Marsh Fastener too - a good quality product, fast service, very reasonable prices and quick shipping. I've done a bit of business with them and never had a problem.

Sorry they not for you this time around....

I have good luck with McMaster. When I order in the AM parts usually arrive via UPS the next afternoon. I'm on LI NY, and the parts are shipped from NJ which is probably why they get to me so fast.

I can order online at 6pm with regular ground shipping and get stuff from the Atlanta warehouse to St. Pete FL the next day; usually before 11. And I can order the weirdest unrelated stuff and it shows up in the same box. I'd love to see their building some day.

You pay extra for McMaster's great service, find them cheaper elsewhere

I have had great luck with www.boltdepot.com

This started as a old mom & pop hardware store that had every crazy fastener that you might ever need. The big box store opened down the road and they went all online as bolt depot. I'm glad they survived.

They have all kinds of old stuff that is hard to find not even listed online, nails for slate roofs, copper fasteners, etc.

We use McMaster-Carr not for price but for quality. They take the time to certify where the product is coming from so you're getting what you ordered.

Yeah...SS nuts and bolts can develop pinhole rusting, even in the higher grades. All SS brightwork on ships made from 316 is also chrome plated. Nuts and bolts are iffy in this regard.

Granger might be an option but I have had better luck with McMaster.
