As I understand it, decks on Whitby's are attached with either pop rivets or through bolted. Is there a way to determine which method was used on a particular boat without an actual examination? Perhaps manufacturing changes over the years? Appreciate any information you might have.

You are yet another victim of a false urban legend. Many years ago somebody saw pop rivets and assumed that was the ONLY attachment method. In reality their inspection was incomplete, they failed to see the bolts that are also there. Pop rivets were a temporary "hold in place" until the Bolts were added. I have photos of bolts on my boat. If you dig around in the Forum history, much has been written about this.

Terry, thanks for the reply. I'm new to the forum so I'll try to figure out where the history archive is and go thru it.
