Mast Rivets for Spinnaker Ring Track
Being "new" to the spinnaker, of course I ripped the track off my mast. Never one to give up, I need to put in on again. I see in the "store" Harry has various rivets. My boat is 3430 (1978) with an 1/8" long by 7/8" wide by 3/16" tall T track. The rivets need to be countersunk type, except the top and bottom which are round, to keep the ring on the mast.
I am guessing that my existing rivets are 3/16" solid aluminum.
How long should the rivets be?
I wonder which ones at the store are the right ones?
05123 looks right, but how long does the rivet need to be?
Is it better to hammer them in, or use a pop rivet tool?
Any tips for drilling out the old rivets?
Any help is appreciated for sure.
