One of the forward boom cap casting, "tabs" broke.
I have the new, replacement boom cap (came with the used boat) and the tabs have no holes in them for hardware and I immediately thought of self-tapping screws. Original factory attachment method was obviously s/s rivets. I'm thinking Brad w/Sunjammers mentioned the option of using s/s screws, but maybe that was an aft cap job?
Would screws works? If so, self-tapping or should I drill and tap the tabs?
I don't have access to the rivet gun and need to take this boat West on Saturday, I'm looking for the "quick fix", if possible.
