Right now, it kind of looks out of place, it needs the weathering so it looks more at home on the boat.
Next project....... outboard motor mount on the aft rail for the dinghy motor.
Just a comment, maybe not necceesary, but will make regardless: If you have serious tides, the board CAN ride up over the fenders. THe result is not pretty, as you can imagine from this finish:

I have not fix for it... only to say that it only happened on unusual circumstances with extreme tides. Just a warning to watch out for your boat.
