What were the original dash fasteners used on early boats? The PO used oval selftappers with washers. Scarred up the thin ss insert. I would like to use the correct fastener if possible...

Jim,

I don't know the exact name but the shoulder washer( the head of the screw countersinks past the high sides of the washer) and should also have a black plastic disc behind it so no metal touches the dash . you would have to size the correct screws and washers.

you can see the washer on this dash hard to tell if the black discs are there

The screws are usually oval head countersunk set into finish washers pictured in the link below.
