    Gunwale Stern Bolts?

    For those of you who have replaced your gunwale stern and decided to do without 3 dollar rivets. What kind of bolts are you using? I have a few that are not long enough due to the sleeve and one will not sit flush (middle). I am all ears if you have sizes and bolt types.

    Bolt that won't fit (think because of the lack of thread and its sleeved)

    You could also use stainless button head socket screws. They have a lower profile head, like a rivet. The ones at Home Depot and Lowes are probably not marine grade stainless, but should have them. If you only ride in fres water, the marine grade stainless isn't neccessary

    Check out this thread from when I changed the gunwale on my 2012 VXR. Hope this helps.
