Port Light - Dogs

I have one broken port dog about halfway down threads.  Does anyone have a source for these - including the wingnut?

Hi Peter,

I was missing one also and couldn't immediately find the dog bolt so I made it myself.  I fabricated it from a 3/8" bolt.  The wing nut you show in the photo you can find easily by doing an internet search for "bronze eye nut".  The size should be 3/8 also to match the threads of the rest of your dogs.

There's also the possibility that you can find the dog bolt at one of the companies that manufacture bronze and stainless portlights like NFM or one of the others.

Long ago I bought several to replace some of mine on Soggy Paws at Don's Salvage in Clearwater, FL.  They are all SS and don't quite look like the originals but they fit with a SS wingnut.  They were a couple of dollars each and he had a box full.
