Thanks for the additonal info, kdowney. If liquid nails didn't do the job , then 3m 5200 won't do it either, so don't even think about buying any, because if you don't use it on this job you will be tempted to use it on another, and 5200 really has no place on a boat for 99% of the jobs it gets used for.
If you could show us some pics of the damage, we can offer some better solutions. Off the top of my head I am thinking that the rivets should be replaced with stainless steeel machine screws, fender washers and nuts, sandwiching a bead of thickened epoxy where the liquid nails was used.
