Fantastic work. Thank you for taking the time to post this, as well as the tools and materials used.
Our bow rail is in desperate need of this. What are you using for aluminum filler?

..."If you look at all of the pictures closely you will see that the aluminum rivnuts crimped into the holes have a flange, this flange is similar to a flat washer, the Starboard material spacers rest atop these rivnut flanges leaving a gap of approximately 1/32""

Excellent! That's all you need.
