Was looking at adding some pad eyes to my kayak. Do most use pad eye with screws or use rivets. Seems rivets would be easier and would not come out as easy. Just looking for suggestions.

Pad eyes ?

Pad eyes go on with rivets if you have no inside access. If you have inside access you can use small stainless screws and a backing plate with washers and nuts with nylonloc. That way they will not back out. You can get the pad eyes fairly cheap and I believe the drill hole is 3/16. If you are worried about water seepage put a dab of some kind of water tight sealant that will adhere to the plastic on the yak. good luck video's should be available on youtube
