Copper roves (or copper rivets) for traditional wooden boat building. Copper rivets are commonly used for fastening planks when building clinker (also known as lapstrake) or carvel-planked vessels.
Our copper roves are sold in units of 100 grams. Receive a discount for ordering 500 grams or more.
Note that users of Chinese-sourced copper roves (now widely available in Australia) are likely to find these US-made roves considerably thicker.
Roves are sized to work with specific nail gauges so be sure to order the correct roves and copper nails as set out below:
