Need info on adding dee rings to Aire boats

Have a Aire Cat Boat and 143 Self Bailer.

Great boats. Except the factory was very stingy with factory installed Dee Rings. Way too few.

I have no experience repairing these Aire Crafts (and hopefully will not need to) so I am asking for advice and instructions on the best glue and dee ring patches and how to install same on Aire boats mine are about 5 years old.

Any help and places to buy is appreciated

Call Aire. They will be happy to tell you the factory method for installation. It's easy, I added 4 extras to my boat. Glad I have them.

Easy enough with PVC based D-ring patches, MEK, and some PVC glue. I picked some up at DRE in Denver and they are bomber. If you don't have a local store call AIRE.
