I recently got a 16 ft monarch... it is a flat bottom boat that is riveted. There are quite a few leaky rivets that have a lot of cold epoxy and bottom paint on them. i plan on flipping it over and wire wheeling the whole affected bottom area. then drill out the rivets that are questionable and use truss head stainless screws and nylocks w/ washers and a dab of 5200 . Then etch prep the whole bottom and use liberal amounts of Gluvit to seal up the imperfections. then primer and bottom paint. Then have the welder beef up the transom and a riser for the 70 hp jet.... The boat will be ran in saltwater to get to the rivers, thus the bottom paint.......Does this sound like a good plan ........ is there a better way.???? ANy and all advice /comments welcome...Thanks guys!!
