if you dont want to do the repair by replacing the rivet, you can buy steel epoxy...it will bond to pretty near anything and will also cure if the spot is damp...you just work the chunk same as putty until its uniformly mixed then press forcefully into place and spread it out...it can be sanded, filed, drilled in 15 minutes if required...1 hr and its there permanently....up here at the hardware store, its about $7.00....Grump


sounds very similiar to liquid aluminum.

I was thinking the same thing... the liquid-weld stuff!

works great on my little aluminum boat.  I drilled holes for my transducer and filled em in with that.  No leaks and its been 3 years now.

 Two good ones of this type are "PC-7" and "Liquid Steel" made by Magic Amarica Company. Both are two part epoxy.
