Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Technical Boom fittings – rivet or self tap? Re: Re: Boom fittings – rivet or self tap?


I just reattached a cleat to the mast, and used stainless steel rivets. To prevent galvanic corrosion, I assembled with Lanocote, an anti-corrosive grease. You can also get a paint that has the same effect.

I am sure that self-tappers also work fine, again use something that prevents corrosion between the stainless and aluminium.
