you can replace with a little lagrer rivets. When you replace theI would go ahead and replace all of them and maybe even consider using a bonding adhesive between the top cap and bottom cap. I'm sure you may know this but just in case you dont, those rivets are what holds the top half of your boat to the bottom half. Thats why I suggested bonding adhesive between top and bottom and then the rivets. 3M makes great adhesives for fiberglass. Get it at an auto body supply shop.
