  1. I am rebuilding a Rich Line Boat with the Serial # 590042 and is a Model C that I bought about 25 years ago. It leaks badly and the wood in the transom is all rotted out. It has the drain plug hole. I paid $60 for it when I got it. I just paid $75 for a sheet of 3/4″ marine plywood to rebuild the transom!!! I am having a hard time finding the 1/4-20 x 2″ aluminum oval head Phillips machine screws that bolt the transom together with. Broke a lot getting them apart. I can find slotted round head and Phillips flat heads but no Phillips oval head. I am think of going with the round head, use an aluminum washer and some silicone or do you think I should keep hunting for the oval head screws?
