1993 Stars and Stripes- update

WE moved 3 years ago and I was back to not much of a garage. This summer we build a new shed so I get to start working on the boat. I will post some pictures here as I go but I am going to need some help along the way!!

This weekend I pulled the rub rail off. What should I fill the rivet holes with?

Seats are all coming out and going to get all updated.
New bearing/bushing in the strut.
Will post pictures of some fiberglass work that I will need done.
Fix stereo system- One side has died
Send in prop to make sure it is balanced.
New carpet
other small odds things-

Any help with be greatly appreciated!

I typically do not worry about filling the holes as much as I take the opportunity to seal the deck to the hull with silicone (since those two pieces are split without the rivets...then follow on with screws for the rail track. Empty holes are irrelevant at this point. There is a trick (ease of work) to the rivets when removing them.

While you are there and have the deck and hull detached...consider replacing the carpet in the boat, where you have plenty of room (doesn't take much) to lift the deck off the floor at strategic points for ease of access to the old / new carpet. If you are going the next level of effort, lift the entire deck (all wires unplug from connectors) and lay in new carpet with the entire hull exposed. Not a big deal since the rivets are out.

I have done several 93s including my daily driver. There are so many mods you can do to improve maintenance - ease of access, new wiring, battery relocation, new hoses everywhere, new platform (solid VS. the OEM slotted)...I could go on and on.

Teak World made it.

I bought three of them about four years ago from a warehouse find. But the solid board can be had from Teak World.

Could be but focus on other possibilities first. There are several components that can throw a vibration, all the way to an often overlooked harmonic balancer.

^^^. O no! Mechanical stuff is easy compared to fiberglass. Is that the top of the strut mount? I forget...

On the platform, just an opinion, the solid looks nice and surely easier to maintain, I find that the slotted are way more “grippy” since your feet dig in a little in the voids vs a smooth wet surface...

Great boat.

Edit: waterlogged confirmed it is w his pic. Good news in my mind is you can completely remove that without affecting strut orientation since 4 bolts would still be secure.
