Default Make your own fender holders

Some guy made his own fender holders out of large pieces of PVC pipe.

They actually looked pretty good. He took white pvc pipe large enough around for the fenders to slip into, and slightly shorter then the fenders, drilled some 2-3 inch holes in it for looks, then mounted in the engine compartment. You can sand the pipe to clean it up and put a nice finish on it.

The ones from Livorsi are very nice. They are billet alum. It is a ton of work to cut them from a solid hunk of alum. Between the time and material, they are expensive.
I installed some in a boat before that came from West Marine. They were made from 3/16" SS bar stock. They weren't as nice as the Livorsi ones but they were still nice. I want to say they were about $75 or so. Very reasonable for what they are. You may want to check it out. Good luck.
