I bought 2 sets of the same ones and they worked and fit great. However I was stupid and forgot to wax them real good and while dialing the boat in with the engine hatches open the salt spray did a number on the finish. Maybe a clear coat? Their cheap enough that I'm gonna pick up 2 more sets.

I have two pair polished I will post some pics later. The are usedand i did drill holes in all four for breathers.

They are hard to keep looking nice, I would think painting or anodizing them would be the way to go.
