Default boat tarp studs

Hey can anyone tell me where the heck I can find a "flangless" stud for my snap on boat cover....I've got the factory snap on cover for my 2005 1800 sr3 and some of the studs screwed to the boat are like razors....the back ones are on a lip so I can't use the normal flanged ones...Geez these things are like trying to find plutonium...

they're easy to find actually....they make a kit that has the pliers for the female snap...and the parts for the male snaps.....you can get them at west marine...I got this kit and it comes with the crimp tool as well as all the fasteners and washers you might ever need...cost is something like 22 bucks...

yes BUT....are they flangless...everything I've found in those kits and otherwise are the ones that have the round ring (or flange) on them....these need to be flangless...It's the stud that screws to the boat....If you look at my picture you see there is no flange on it...
