    Mast rivet size

    Just got to my club and checked it. There isn't play. It just wiggles every so slightly, but nothing that would give me concern

    Mast rivet size

    So, everyone kept pushing me to use stainless here, but my understanding is that aluminum corrodes terribly when in contact with stainless. Now I'm back to my thought of drilling them all out and starting over with aluminum.

    Mast rivet size

    I went with the suggestion of a single rivet instead of two. The collar now has a little bit of play in it (moves a millimeter or two up and down) on the side opposite the rivet. Is this normal? I am assuming the pressure from the sail and the downhaul will keep things compressed. Jeffrey

    Mast rivet size

    End for ending the top section. Was jumping on here to start correcting everyone talking about the gooseneck but you beat me to it. I had thought I mentioned the collar on here, but now i see that was on a different site.

    Mast rivet size

    Was ordering some parts today and the recommended is 3/16" x 1/4". I understand extra spread for grip, but is it overkill? I only ask because I can get 3/16 x 1/4 stainless easy where as x 1/2 is a pain. I won't be going out in 20+ knots due to the age of the boat

    Yes, I have a rivet gun for stainless from our old farm. Still works great

    Mast rivet size

    I tend to use aluminum. Any coating I need for that? (Don't think so, the mast itself is aluminum)

    Oh good, was about to use 3/16"-1/4" Glad my end cap broke and I didn't continue.
