Part of the problem is that even "clean" fenders aren''t, and end up sanding down the finish due to airborne grit and (unless you''re on a lake) salt crystals. Gelcoat, even faded, seems to be a tougher surface than awlgrip. Our awlgrip looks so poorly now (at 12-15 years old?) that Finesse doesn''t do much, and we''re having it repainted. Based on your input, we may get fender covers for when we go to the dock next season.
