Hello. My first post, I'm sure it won't be the my last, I'll have lots of questions and this forum looks like a gold mine of information and help. I've sailed on and off for about fifty years and I retired a couple of years ago to a lake and recently acquired a pair of early 70's vintage Sunfish. They're complete, but haven't been in the water for at least ten years. One is a 72 and had a keel fracture amateurishly repaired. That one's a project and I'm still deciding how I'm going to address it. The other one is a 73 and seems in pretty reasonable shape. I've scrubbed her down and hadn't seen a major issue until I decided that the main sheet bridle looked a little rotted and probably need replacing. Seemed to be a pretty minor job until I took the first screw out. (One at a time, didn't want to loose the backing plate.) To my surprise, they weren't the machine screws I was expecting, but wood screws. I'm guessing one of the PO's lost the backing plates and substituted the wood screws for the machine screws. No inspection port (yet?) so I can't see inside. What's the consensus, use the wood screws and don't worry about it, put in an inspection port and proper nuts and bolts, or .....pop rivets? Thanks in advance for the advice and hope to be able to lend some in the future.
