    You can buy what they call a head maker to match any solid rivet you use. I work in the transit bus trade and have done lots of solid riveting. The chisel gun with headmaker on the outside and someone on the inside with a dolly or small solid block of steel. Do a few practices on some scrap metal and after couple times you can feel and listen for a good mash of the rivet. I would dip each rivet in 221 Sikaflex prior to hammering it for a 100% seal. Use aluminum anodized solid rivits not bare aluminum as they corrode to easily. Need any advice on solid riveting PM me...Ive only got 40yrs experience doing that. Much the same as aircraft builders.

    Its interesting to see another person not happy with Legend boats. I have a problem where the bow of the boat where the trolling motor mounts broke inside as 3 of the 4 brackets welds failed. I talked to both Legend dealers and they were useless, I was told to take it into a welding place on my own and get it repaired. I took it in and they looks at the welds and laughed at the pitiful welds they did originally at the factory. I'd never buy one of their boats again.

    I completely re-did my 22ft StarCraft, it can be done.  Yes it's labour intensive, but it really isn't all that bad.  If you don't like the idea of properly setting a rivet using an air chisel and bar, the leaking section can be replaced with pan head stainless steel bolts with 3M 5200 and lock nuts.  Many aluminum boats have been repaired this way.  A great forum to check out is the StarCraft restoration forum on Iboats. I know yours is a legend, but the techniques apply to any riveted boat.  As for the foam, yes it's a pain but it comes out.  I used a shovel for breaking out large chunks and finished it off with a power washer. If you do decide to tackle it, once you repair the bad area, seal it all with Gluvit.  It's great stuff. 
    Poke around that forum and you'll see that it's a very doable job.

    I don't believe legend does... lund does tho.... i stayed away from the legends when I purchased my lund because  of reviews and things ppl had told.me... I'd consider taking it apart  yourself  than having them  do the work or don't even go to legend and go  somewhere totally different... there's  no warranty so why give legend more of your money

    That's a horrible story. Your boat might be 17 years old but has probably the equivalent of one year of use. However, trying to get a dealer to fix it at that age would be almost impossible. I guess an overhaul for a motor of that age is not unreasonable but my 90hp 2 stroke Yamaha that I bought new in 1993 and used more for skiing and tubing than fishing, has never had a wrench on it. Only about 2 sets of plugs. Sold it 3 years ago and the new owner says it's been trouble free. I'm on my second Lund boat because I liked the first one so much. 18 years and the seats, carpet, wiring, gauges, fittings etc were all in great condition. I did take care of it and always stored it indoors but it was used hard. I guess there's a reason the Lunds are more expensive, but to me they have been worth it. I wish you luck and hope some of the guy's suggestions will work for you and get you back on the water.

    WalleyeChaser reacted to bigugli in Niagara river   
    We decided to go out despite the threat of rain Sunday morning. Had the entire lower river to ourselves.  Took abou an hour to figur out a working pattern on the smallmouth. Once we had things figured out it was a blast. Swim baits and twister tails tossed up into the shallows were the ticket  for three solid hours of fishing. FInally, we had to give up as the rain was getting a lot heavier and the sky was getting that 'thunderstorm" black. At the end of it we had boated close to 50 bronze backs, biggest being around 3 1/2.

    We should have like a NFN wall of fame or something commemorating the members of this forum who have given years of help, knowledge and friendship and been an upstanding member of nfn but have passed on... maybe a picture, a blurb about them and what they gave to nfn and the community and maybe a section where members can post stories or memories about the individual...??? Maybe ??? I feel.like they deserve more than just archived posts.... thoughts?

    WalleyeChaser reacted to verado in 2002 merc 115hp 4 stroke idle problem   
    My Merc 200 four stroke is only 4 years old and to date I have had no problems. I use regular unleaded from the major brands but occasionally I do top up with high test if I know the boat will be sitting idle for some time. I also will put in as much premium as I can afford before winter storage and only then do I use a stabilizer. As for buying fuel, I am sometimes leery of small northern lakes marinas as they only sell a fraction of the fuel that road stations do and I question how fresh the fuel is and the condition of their tanks. As for oils etc., I am a firm believer in using only the products marketed by the engine manufacturer. I have been doing this for 40 plus years and have never had a problem. My Dad was using CTC 2 stroke oil in his new 35 Evinrude (he used all of 2 cans a season) because it was cheaper. When he had a problem under warranty and it had to go back to Peterborough, they told him immediately on opening it up that he was not using OMC oil because of the residue found on the rings. I am sure there are some excellent off-brand products out there but we don't know which ones they are. I wonder how many engine rebuilds Walmart has paid for because their cheaper lubricants are not up to the task. Mercury, Yamaha, etc. have a vested interest in their products and want their customers to be satisfied. We are not driving our boats to work everyday so the little bit extra we pay over a season is well worth the peace of mind and possibly, the better performance.
