blind rivet length  Bottom

  • What is the proper size and length of rivet for the H18 tramp track mounted to each hull? Are these stainless or aluminum?

    Thank You

  • My old parts catalog calls for part # 8010121 or a 3/16" X 5/8" with a backup washers. Be sure to buy enough rivet caps, part # 08011291. The guide states (9) required.You may choose more.

    Now that size seems a little short to me, so I would get the longest rivet that fits the rivets caps if it was me and be sure to use those backup washers or stainless fender washers if they fit and as you could reach.
    Use your imagination to reach the backside of the rivets inside the hulls as a backup.

    You may have to trim fender washers to fit into that tight pocket under deck.

    I remember adding some rivets to my 21SE tramp track and that what I did. icon_cool

  • ~~ Yes get SS... and if thats the track for the jib cars ya have to get "COUNTER SUNK" rivt's.... If ya don't use them you won't be able to move yer jib-cars on yer jib track...... There is a difference

  • Problem solved, I think.

    I called Backyard Boats and Jay set me up with the full set plus some extras for both the jib track and the tramp track for both hulls.

    I will tell you the price when I get the invoice.

    Thanks for the help guys
