Next project - repairing our Achilles dinghy with the d-ring patch kits; this required further investigation of what type of adhesive had actually been provided - we had two tubes of 'no name' adhesive and the instructions didn't appear to refer to what we had. Once again, thank goodness for Skype and the ability to phone suppliers for clarification. The challenge here is that the lines used to lift and carry the dinghy are spliced on to d-rings which were attached to heavy strapping; all of a piece. Last season, with very little exposure to the sun, we thought, the strapping basically disintegrated showing the power of U.V.! Our new kit provides hypalon patches with attached d-rings, but no lines. The Captain is designing a way to utilize the existing spliced lines with the old and new d-rings.
