Fin screws?

Anyone know of any surf shops (sligo/clare) that stock replacement fin screws?

They would just rust very very quickly in sea walter, be impossible to open after a while and leave dirty stains. Ordinary hardware stores or mechanical shops do not generally do or need to do the correct type of stainless steel.

Would have thought the same too. Problem arose after using an allen key from my toolbox to remove a fin to repair the box
