Go to McMasterCarr, and order the 1/4" s/s, high strength rivets in 18-8 stainless. 2450 lbs sheer EACH. You'll need one of these to install them :

1/4 1/4" Rivet Gun : Amazon.com : Automotive



Install with plenty of Lanocote or Tefgel and you'll have a solution that will outlast the boat, you, and probably modern industrial society.
