Just noticed all my rivets are getting loose.
Is this under warranty or do I need to replace these myself?

Similar topic: My AKA are overall getting much more play in them and when sailing they bounce around much more than when new? Is this an issue or just wear and tear?

keith,

Are there any plans to tour the Everglades this winter? Looking forward to going again if you are planning.

Hi Charlie,

Definately doing the Flamingo to Chokoloskee this year--probably about the same dates again (Jan 9-15). Does that fit your schedule? I'm confident Nancy can join us at that time.

PS We'll move this over to my "Have you done any expeditions?" thread when appropriate.
