I have to rig my yak with a couple of items and I’m going to use the well nuts system rather than a pop rivet. Has anyone had problems with the well nut method of attaching items to their yak? FishHawk
I use well nuts…
in fact I may be the KING of well nuts…I attached all the rigging for a sail and outriggers using them…must be a couple of dozen attachments using them in the hull.
Question: you paddling in Salt or fresh water? There can be a reaction between salt water, the brass in the well nut and the stainless steel of the screws…make sure you rinse the boat and the well nuts well after use!
Get the right kind of rivets
It makes a difference and these hold very well:
