fastenings on 56 sportsman

Post by jerryv » Sun Apr 21, 2013 7:22 am

Greetings. I recently purchased a 1956 CC special sportsman. It underwent a restoration but all of the screws were replaced with the wrong types. Would someone please tell me what are the correct screws for fattening hardware, chrome,rub rail and battens?
Thank you.
Jerry

Kinda odd the wrong screws were used, but maybe not. How did the rest of the work turn out?
We used stainless phillips from the local hardware and nobody has complained yet. I will have to confirm on the oval or flat head.
As far as the battens... those screws should be silicon bronze and covered with bungs, right?

Much about this boat is incorrect.The screws used were square drive flat head. The stain was incorrect. The bottom color was not right. The survey mentioned all of this and said it was a solid boat. If I could get it for 8 k it would be a great deal. Which I was able to do.
