    I get my rivets and hardware online at Bass pro shops. Local shops charge an arm and leg.

    Ive been told not to do it because of rust issues. If you do get aircraft grade, but Ive heard they are $$$. Better off mounting with stainless hardware, but not sure what your trying to add on.

    Side carry handles. No access to inside hull in that area.

    Rivets do not sound like a good idea for carry handles. If they give out you could be stuck with a bigger problem. Check out the Yak Attack Rigging Bullet. https://video.search.yahoo.com/yhs/s...f5&action=view

    What about well nuts? I have many rivets on my '95 Ocean Scupper Classic that are strong and handle the weight of the yak easily. Mostly fresh water but have had many trips in the salt. I wouldn't hesitate to replace with rivets.
