Riveting on the Aframe would be novel!!

I prefer to use a4 stainless bolts with countersunk or cheese head allen key drive for the smaller ones as they look better. i love my washers and nylon insert nuts for knowing it is done up just right!
only reason i mentioned it was that all my protex catches and hinges are rivited on to the jockey seats - but the jockey seats in a Ribcraft are fibreglass - no plywood...

problem with rivets is you have to have the right size otherwise it wont fit properly or could come loose or could stress the fibreglass. It is ok for Ribcraft as they do loads of these to assemble in a standard way and have all the correct sizes, for me Machine screws are probably the best solution.

oh yes twin aerials, one is a backup spare for safety !
the transom bung i fitted is identified in a pic below. it is a nice stainless steel item that looks well made and much better than the cheap items you normally get at chandlers that i have seen, i got it from ribcraft when i was there

It does look a nice bit of kit,bet it was expensive in stainless too.I have yet to hear of a bung that doesn't leak on a rib left on a mooring though,hence the drastic step of glooping it up

not sure on the price as i got it as part of a whole package from ribcraft......toobs and elephant trunks and various bits and bobs

but all the others i have seen are naf in comparison, it has a nice quality rubber seal so should work well. personally i would not trust those plastic items

True, you may have a flash stainless item, but no matter which bung you own they are all as bad as each other when it comes to forgetting it

Must be one of those new flooding hull vipermax's
