Retired? No way man, too many petrochemicals to retire that thing just yet. You wanna save the world? Do it the right way and dont replace gear until you HAVE TO. Forget the rest of the eco-nazis who buy new gear, year after year and claim "green status." Hhahah ok, I digress.
But anyways, wipe really clean with Toluol and then rough it up on the glue side for both items. Blow away excess dust. Lay on the thinnest coat you can find of glue, here's the trick--wait then 24 hrs till totally dry--this is especially important for stress bearing items like D-rings, footcups and thwart connections (maybe not so much)--then lay on a second coat--wait two hrs, then when totally dry, reactivate with a generous swipe of toluol to get it sticky (some add a third coat here) to do the same thing--then apply together with as much pressure as possible.
Add all features to your boat, other than hole repairs, while raft is inflated---with the exception of footcups--do these while deflated.
Good luck--its easy--and remember the thinner the better (use newer glue--its less viscous.)
