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

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?

      Decided to hit a couple spots today. Water too high at the first spot so I went to spot number two.  Two so far after 20 minutes

      I hope this analysis is wrong, but was doing some math trying to guesstimate when Lake V might go ice free.   As of today, the DNR shows only one lake in the state to be ice free: Pepin.  Pepin went out 20 days later than the median date and 4 days later than the nearest comparable cold year of 2013.   If we extrapolate this same delay to Lake V, then we are looking at an ice out in the neighborhood of May 20th or 21st.  Not quite the record, but close - and plenty late enough to screw up a lot of plans.  Like I said, I hope this analysis is flawed somehow.

      Hey Guys,   Just wondering if any lakes are open or close to being open?  Got the itch to get the boat out and wet a line!

      St Louis county has something similar on their web sight (sic) https://gis.stlouiscountymn.gov/LandExplorer/
