Dock box rivet size?

Does anyone know the size of the rivets used in the common dock box? I donít know the brand but the rivets look the same in most Iíve seen. They are bigger than anything my West Marine carries (I was able to compare with the in-store dock box).

Mr. m. I'm not really sure what you're looking for but perhaps this will help:

You'll need to source them from a trade supplier,as FF recommended; you won't find these at WM or the box stores. Since you'll be using an aluminum rivet, you can probably pull it with a good hand tool like an all steel Malco hand riveter. Use a rivet with a bulbing blind side or use washers on the blind side, otherwise you'll pull the rivet into the fiberglass and crack/crush it.

I used a sharp Chisel to pop the heads off then tapped them out through the other sie of the hole....some might need to be redrilled just due to wear if your deck was soft and springy...
