  1. So the boat isn't sinking or anything, but I have a very light weight 14' aluminum fishing boat from the 1950s that I pulled out of the woods. I have gotten it into working order, but some of the rivets leak a good bit. I've heard horror stories about people who attempt to fix this and make the problem worse. I plan to paint the boat soon, so I'd like to fix this before I put the new paint on. Any suggestions, or should I just flatten them out a bit more with a hammer and steel as I've planned? Thanks!
