As Deb said, originally rivets for the hull to deck joint and screws for the cap rail... No.55 is now 14g screws for the cap rail and 5/16 bolts for the deck joint.

Also note that when the deck was placed on the hull it was ‘glued’ on with resin. The reason for the pop rivets was to hold it in place while it was curing. The reason for the thru-bolts was increased stability. The pop rivets were never intended as an end-all attachment solution.

Question “ No.55 is now 14g screws for the cap rail and 5/16 bolts for the deck joint.”

Are you saying it was not previously bolted or screwed?

(Maybe I’m over-reading this.)

Steve,
i think your over reading into this.. i can't be any clearer...

Deb,
If the rivets were just used to hold the joint together while being glued it seems pretty strange that there was rivets every inch or two.. just an observation.
I had a ship run into me and tore apart the joint, I was happy to have the rivets there.
