Re: Rivets for Head sail furling foil

Gary Wells

When I had my foil and forestay repaired at Amel Martinique they replaced the rivets with threaded bolts.  I want to say 10mm  They did install backing plates to reinforce the contact points. Tef-Gel and one additional tightening since then, but it has not loosened due to flex and there i no corrosion to date.
