You're right. I added snap caps to everything but the belly band, windows
rail. It probably didn't need it, but I added a drop of Dicor sealant to the rivet heads on the awning
AS I remember I replaced well over 100 rivets.
The PO had an awning rail bolted to the roof and all the bolts leaked.
That was removed, sealed and riveted.
The door window and both side windows
were removed, sealed and re-riveted.
vents, stove vent, heater exhaust vent, electric cord hatch, and water fill were all re-riveted.
The PO also had about 10 rivets he put through the hull for no apparent reason.
I think I replaced more on the 13 than I did when I replaced all the rivets and snap caps on my 16.
