But, to list a pro for fiberglass, if something does happen to fiberglass, it is easy to repair. I build and fly scale model aircraft. I have made many fiberglass parts and repaired them as well. My plan is that if something really bad happens to my fiberglass fenders, is to glue them back together, clean them up, use them as a plug to create a mold and then fabricate my own replacement part. But then again, I consider that fun.

I like my color matched fenders. All in one's personal taste. I bought my boat "off the lot" like I do my cars. I actually had them swap the "low profile" trailer with another trailer so that it color matched my boat.

Too late, my boat went red today so I'll have to stick with the fiberglass but the stainless steel was pretty expensive so probably for best.

Our local dealers and a friend that operates a local fiberglass repair shop claim if the boat sits outside much at all that the reflective nature of chrome or stainless will cause hazing cracks in the gel coat. I was strongly encouraged not to do it even though I store my boat indoors and would be willing to put no slip on the tops.

We live at higher altitude and the sun is a little more intense here so maybe it is enough of a difference.

Too bad! Stainless is definitely nice to have.

That's actually not as bad as I expected from MC. Our local guy charges $900 for a set.

Who'd a thunk MC would be price competitive on anything!

$$$ not bad from MC, I paid $500 for the fender upgrade when we ordered through Boatmate. They are on their website too if you ever want the upgrade Not sure if they would fit though.

Nothing wrong with red fenders.
