Bunk pads on fenders

Just wondering how the early fiberglass trailers (1984) attached bunk carpet to the inside of the fender wells...were they riveted or glued on?
Seems like rivets is the way to go, but thought I'd ask before I do it...

They were glued on, I had to custom make replacements on my 93

Yes, I'm custom making some myself. My others were glued on, but came off on launch the other day. Lost one so I thought maybe a couple of small rivets might do the trick.

I used 3M spray glue on mine last year, and they haven't moved a bit. Good stuff if you follow the instructions. I would think you don't want rivet heads possibly contacting your hull.

I believe I used the 5 min marine epoxy? Not sure. I bought the carpet at a local boat dealer and had a carpet company cut it to size using the old one as a template, then sew a serge onto the edges to keep it from fraying.

Thanks for that info guys...I like that serge as you call it. Looks real clean and definitely stops the fray. I also considered that tough, large loop Velcro as well, but sounds like either one of the glues you guys suggested might work.
This forum is great! Appreciate the help...
