Achilles LSI-310E dinghy got a D ring, or Not!

Beginning of November 2015 - At private slip in Nuevo Vallarta in Banderas Bay, Mexico

While house sitting in Bucerias we tried once again to cement theis D ring onto our Achilles 10.2 LSI-310E dinghy. The cement marks you see are from a previous try at this unattainable goal.

Cleaned and ready to go.

Cemented and holding the D ring in place.

Stacking weight on the D ring.

All done!

Pulled right off!


Ok fast forward to the end of the summer while we are house sitting in Nuevo Vallarta.
Here we tried 3M 5200 fast cure after it was suggested by Danny and Debra on S\V Cyclades.

After letting it set over night it pulled right off.

The cement we try always stays cemented to the D ring but not to the Hypalon on the Achilles dinghy! Maybe next year :)
