Re: Suggestions for a small boat vang

I believe that 316 is more corrosion-resistant, but not quite as strong. I use plenty of lanocote between the rivet and the mast, should help stop any corrosion, galvanic or otherwise.

BTW, if you're dealing with the 1/4" s/s rivets, you'll need a riveter with lots of leverage, like this :
