Go to any marine repair shop or boat dealer. They shouyld have the rivets you need. Use aluminum only.

FishinMaverick, Some years ago, I replaced 90% of the rivets in a 17' canoe. I got solid aluminum rivets from the local Trucking garage. They use 'em on the cabs and trailers. I did need to make a bit for my air chisel but the canoe still floats so it musta worked smile.gif. Phred52
