Supplies of PT Screws
Starboard must be aware that the M6 x28mm footstrap screws used in 2008 boards are not man enough for the job and regularly work loose...then rip out destroying the thread in the plug. There is a simple solution, which is to use M7x32mm screws as fitted to 2010+ boards BUT no one appears to be able to get hold of these screws!!!! The UK importer Tushingham has no stock, the shops have no stock and I have yet to find a general fasteners company that can supply small quantities of what is a relatively specialist piece of hardware. These screws are Stainless Steel PT ( plastic technology) m7x1x32mm ( where the middle figure is the pitch).
Given the numbers of pre 2010 Starboard boards out there this is a customer service issue and to some extent a safety issue.
COME ON STARBOARD.....MAKE A SUPPLY OF THESE SCREWS AVAILABLE PLEASE.
