There are two parallel triangular metal parts at each corner of the main sail. Those two metal act as a support for the sail so the tension wouldnt tear the hole open.
Look at figure 24 in
My first question is what do you call these two metal parts?
My second question is; what kind of rivits hold those two pieces together? Salt water seemed to have eaten up these rivits in the front part (where the boom attaches to the main sail) and they are no longer supporting the sail properly. I need to replace all 6..
Can i get these rivits (If that's what they're called) from a regular hardware store?? or Hobie?
