Re: This video is absolutely riveting...

That is the best demonstration for why you should use rivets in lieu of stainless screws. Just the time cursing would have been longer than the whole rivet process took.

Yes, I replaced 6 rivets in less than 10 minutes. Both ends are now tightened up, after becoming quite loose. The forces are spinnaker pole ends are shearing forces, so a rivet is perfectly well-suited to the task.

For the newbies if using stainless steel rivets in an aluminum pole be sure to coat the rivets with tef-gel or something similar to prevent galvanic corrosion.

Rivets are great.

Re: This video is absolutely riveting...

The pole itself is usually in compression, not shear. The way the pole is fitted to the ends, there should be little load on rivets themselves.
