raft repairs

I recently bought a old pvc raft in need of some repairs. when removing some of the d rings a few dime size pieces of the pvc came up revealing the cords, is this a concern or will i be alright just putting the new dring patches over the top of this. any input would be great thanks.

When you put your new d rings, they are just like patches. If its a dime size hole in the boat you might want to consider putting a patch on the inside. Stabond is a great product for PVC. If its not a hole going into the raft you will have no issues at all. Take your time putting on the the d rings and they will stay forever. PVC is easy to patch. Also be careful pulling off old d rings. It depends on what kind of glue was on the old d rings. If you just ripped them off and the boat is old parts of you raft will come with it. Make sure your surface on the raft doesnt have pieces of the old d ring left on it. This will cause bubbles in your d ring and it will eventually fall off. Again take your time patching and your raft will last forever. Hope this helps, Jason
