D ring on dinghy

Recommended Posts

Definitely just pop into a chandlery and pick up a ring of pretty much any kind. Take your drill and some rivets down to the dinghy and make good a repair.


Paying someone will cost more than the dinghy is worth.

Chop the remaining broken lug off with a hack saw carefully. Measure the pitch of the two middle rivets. From the Chandlers get a U bolt that best suits the pitch of the two rivets and diameter of the U bolt. Drill the two middle rivets out and with sealant and penny washers bolt it up. The penny washers might have to be pre bent to take up the contour of the inside.
