Re: Using SS versus AL rivets for vang install
I'd have thought you'd definitely want to go stainless rivets but I hadn't heard that about Lanocote dripping. I've used it on our previous boat (she was steel) and despite Australian weather didn't have any problems with it running.
You will need as JR said, more than a standard gun. We had one nearly three feet long, worked like a charm. Just don't make a mistake, they are , as you probably already know, an absolute bugger to drill out.
