Thunder, what did you expect a topic of “screws” from Driller to be about?🤓

If I remember Driller posted this link for replacement pins for the Bimini top

https://greatlakesskipper.com/boat-bimi ... less-steel

Does anyone have any good instructions and/or videos to show how to install the replacements? They come from Cobalt attached by rivets and I am guessing you have to drill them out. This is new territory for me so any suggestions will be most appreciated.

I replaced all the lanyards on my pins last year.
What I did was use a center punch to drive the center of the rivet out. Then drilled out the rivet. For install I got some stainless steel rivets.
