Pearson 28 Dodger

I have a dodger for my old 1975 Pearson 28. Problem is I don't have the screws. Would anybody, by any slim chance, know the size of the screws holding it?
Well it's this or the big pot of screws I have and considering it's size I'm really hoping for an answer

Re: Pearson 28 Dodger

How long is string?

What screws? and who knows? I'd eat my shoes I Pearson made standard dodgers for their boats.

Pretty much what I was afraid of. The screws I need attach the frame to the outside of the boat. The metal bracket is there but don't have the screw. Gonna have to break out the pot of screws.
Now of course I'm new to sailing as well as my boat..... SO.. this is going to be entertaining.

Tnx much for the reply

I'd be willing to wager the fittings were made by Taylor made. You may be able to just buy the screws for them. Are they plastic or metal fittings?

Screws like these?

Just an FYI to anyone who is interested. The dodger uses 1/4 - 20 screws.. Just by luck I found one in the house and it worked. Thanks to all.

Re: Pearson 28 Dodger

People tend to use the dodger to hold onto when going forward, I would suggest bolts/washers which are stronger and would solve the screw length issue too.
