How do I repair my raft

I have a 10 yr old boat that is new to me. I need to know how to remove old worn d-ring patches. I pretty much get the concept of putting a patch on, but i have noe idea ho you get them off. Would a heat gun, or hair dryer work, or should I use some kind of chemical?

Heat gun will probably help, alot of the "how's" to repair boat depends on the boat and the material... Check out the NRS website, there are some good "How-to" Raft repair articles on it. Can also drop a line to the raft company (Phone, email). One more good resource is downriver equipment

It might be better for your raft to install the new D-ring next to the old one. That way you do not cut or tear a hole in your raft taking off the old one.

Taking the old patches off can be done with heat, sharp blade, MEK or another solvent.
