Not marine-specific but have a look through here though you might be spoiled for choice

If you mean Dzus fasteners have a look through that link I posted. They do several types of them.

some helpful links and ideas on the fasteners, probably wont use nails and 8 inch coach bolts but they do seem to be in keeping on mollers and parkseys boats

i think i need to drill a couple of pilot holes thru the fibreglass to see what length bolts/set screws i need. i guess i need to allow for expansion and contraction so a gromet of some sort is needed but to use a cheese head set screw would be ideal, and prefer black i think, although some of those plastic head covers might do the trick that you put on screws.

thumbing thru m and p as i type

will also be fitting a stainless grab rail round the top of the screen

Are you planning on fixing the screen to the surround rail?
If so, then this will take a lot of the loading and you should then get away with using simpler fixings to attach the screen to the console.

I have used 4mm button head allen bolts and flat washers with a 6mm thick closed cell foam strip between the screen and the console.

Hugh the bike screen fittings use rubber mounted wellnuts , better than a grommet

as for bending get the whole area as hot as you can from a 3-4 inch distance, it will not scorch nor mark in any way, so long as you do not touch it with the heat gun,
when it is all wobbly/flexable hold it where you require, with some good gloves or as i do shape it first from polystyrene then lay it over it,, patience will get you there,

after you get the shape wet -n-dry edge then polish with glitto or simmilar for nice edge,,, or if you have nice hobby brazing kit flame polish the edge,, try it on an off cut first though, gives lovelly finish
