I'll be ready to re-install my tramp tracks on my restored H18 hulls in a couple of weeks, and was considering using small stainless steel bolts rather than the stock rivets and washers. I've seen rivets get loose over time, and you have to drill them out to fix the problem. Bolts seem like a better idea, easy to install, easy to replace, easy to tighten. I've already checked and there is plenty of clearance for round-head, phillips bolts on the top and lock-nuts underneath. Does anyone have some good reasons why I shouldn't use the bolts?
