    How to fix scratched chrome on the bumber-gctid400869

    My new 2011 Bayliner 2855 has chrome (or metal) bumpers. Of course I already scratched them...deeply. Some areas are rusting already. Is there a way to fix this?

    PS: I like the rubber bumpers on the older models.

    thanks

    Mike

      That BL's had 'bumbers'....granted some Searays do..and they also come with training wheels.

        I'm thinking he means the rubrail.

          I don't know if the rub rail is stainless, aluminum or chrome, but the rust isn't good. You really can't fix scratches or gouges, but you might want to use some rust remover to clean it up.

            If you really want to fix the deep scratches in your metal rub rails, any good welder can do the repairs but you might have to pull the boat for repairs.......

              After boating for over 30 years, I wasn't sure of the exact term..but yes it is the rub wall...or whatever you call it. It may be stainless steal, but it still is rusting where I scratched it....sucks...a new boat too.
