Sorry to hear that T37, she did feed you a line of crap, I suppose if your HD was a show bike you'd replate it once a yr or two whether it needed it or not, but chrome done and maintained right should last many years.
I swear, next time try PC, it comes in colors that would blow you away, you could get the inside done in a color that matches your boat and a outside finish from high luster metal finishes to weathered bronze and do it for under 400 bucks.
I had a YZ Yamaha frame PC'ed in metalic candy silver base coat with a translucent candy blue finish for under 400.00, Had a YZF frame done in Fire engine red for under 350.00. Had all the deck hardware, port frames and hatch hinges on our last boat done in weather bronze done for 500.00
Done correctly it will last years & years, even if you f*** one up, a 50-75.00 minimum PC charge & 2 days and you have a new finish.

Lord, give me coffee to change the things I can change and Rum to accept the things I can't
