If you just want s/s and not marine grade then find someone in France to pick up a box from the Bricolage. They are sold side by side with standard Spax type and are really cheap.

I use these guys. The a4 screws, nuts and bolts etc at a few pence each are exactly the same as the ones you buy in a chandlers in a pack or 3 or 4 from holt or another marine name and pay a couple of pounds per pack. Great value.
