    Alright guys and gals...I have an Achilles raft and need to replace (5) D-rings hopefully by the 17th. Just noticed that they are about to pop, and I have a guide trip booked then. Does anyone know where in town I can go pick them up and get some advice on replacing them, or can anyone do it for me on this site if I pay. All the repair shops want $95 per hour and they say each takes 3 hours. WAY TOO MUCH $$$. I can but a new raft on e-bay for that. Any help would save my skin.

    Have you tried the Inflatable Boat store in Portland. I've bought parts from them before.

    Swiftwater in Shoreline has what you need. You can drive up or have them mail the stuff to you.

    FYI can't ship the adhesives via air without paying a $35 HAZMAT fee. Order from NRS today with ground shipping and you'll get it on Tuesday, or go to:

    Inflatable Boatworks
    101 Nickerson, Ste B-500
    Seattle, WA 98107

    They should have what you need.
