Re: Glue, screw or rivet spinnaker pole ends?
Considering that you might need to replace the tube at some point if its damaged, or a damaged end fitting without harming the tube itself, it would be wise to use machine screws with a little TefGel applied to the threads. Someday you, or a subsequent owner, will be glad you did.
