Boat leak fix?

Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Walter Adkins, Oct 3, 2004.

  1. I have a 12' aluminum boat that has some leaks around the rivets. I would like to know what you think is the best way to fix this problem.

    Walter,

    If you can get to the rivits from the inside your best bet is to remove the ones that are loose and replace them with new ones, I have all the tools to do it with, if you need help I can come over and help you out, Enon is on my way to work and home.....Doc
     

  3. Walt, the link will give you a lot of different ideas. If at all possible replace the rivets; anything else would be a short time fix. I replaced more than 40 in my little boat, a bit of a pain in the rump, but I have no leaks.
