Does anyone know what size of carbon rivets I need to replace the old style lower shroud bracket with a new style one?

Cheers,

Andy

Ovi do them if you call. I usually ask for them when I buy fittings.

Or sailboats:

I think LDC as well.

Which one you need depends on the thickness of fitting + mast wall + sleeves on the inside. Probably the smaller but best to measure.
