    Default repair leaks in aluminum canoe

    I have a few small leaks in my canoe, mostly at rivets and seams, i'm looking for information on how to repair these leaks, not looking for anything like roofing tar or any garbage like that I want something that looks clean and can be painted.
    thanks for any tips or advice

    you can also reseat the rivets or replace them.....also you can get some liquid aluminum that works pretty good...
