Splicing is easy and very therapeutic you could cut out the D ring pass a good quality cord through the hole and whip round the rope on each side but you would need a ring at each end to get it taught

Tip for getting the line taught, inflate the tubes, thread the line through the rings & mark the length, deflate the tube & make your splice. Inflate tube & you should have a nice tight line.

No need for D rings on the end...just loop it back and splice in.

i thought that, you could go for a very small twisted shackle and pass the rope through it splicing each end, the pin through where the ring went and the rope diameter to suit the shackle eye that way the rope will stop the shackle flapping about and you will have plenty of room to get hold of the rope since its only attached each end [longer span] if that makes sense

Something like this instead of the D rings, with the rope passed all the way through and spliced at either end?

spot on if that works for you and you could use hollow rope to save splicing you just poke the end of the rope down the middle and pull tight it just needs melting on the end to form a point for ease pushing down lots of sibs have hollow rope i think rib shop sells it
