Its always nice when you are able to successfully repair your boat on your own. The hinge rivets on my front center deck lid had broken. So I successfully found some repair info on the internet, purchased a rivet gun, rivets and successfully replaced the rivets and the deck lid hinge is now snug and secure, works great. Also replaced my trolling motor rope with a new GMan wire cable, much better. There is so much helpful information on the internet now, videos for just about everything. Or you can google the problem you are experiencing with your boat, theres a good chance there is info out there to help.
