The subject line says it all really.

I lost the***from my Bic Vivace Fin and don't have a dealer locally.
 There is a yacht chandler though theat sells stainless steel screws.

It looks like 6mm but I am not sure.  Does anyone know what size***I
need?

Cheers,

Bruce C.

There are a couple of different sizes of fin screws used in windsurfing
boxes.  Some are metric and some are standard.  Most common hardware
stores sell stainless screws for around 15 cents each... but they don't
sell the flat square bases.  Don't use nylon screws or brass.  They will
break and you will loose your fin.

commen thread sizes for european windsurf hardware are 8X1.25mm

hardware store a chandlery maybe why not just go down to your local surf
shop
