Default Rocket trailer fenders

My rocket trailer fenders were very flimsy, as are the support brackets. One was bent a little. Then I stood on it getting into the boat and it was bent a lot!
I took off the fenders (aluminum diamond plate by the way) and cut 2x10's to the right length. They fit right in between the lips. I painted the board black, drilled the fender and bolted the board in place from the top with a pair of lag bolts every 12". The bolt heads don't look bad imo. I re-installed the fenders 1 1/2" higher to keep the tire clearance the same and filled the bolt holes with dummy bolts. I bolted the supports on with lag bolts. The 1/4" or so that extends below the fender really isn't noticeable being black.
Now the fenders are straight and will hold 2 people.
Just thought the rest of you with these trailers might have the same problem

Sounds like a plan ....so the 2x10 runs the length of the fender?

Yes, I ran them the full length, bend to bend. The fenders are now very stiff. I was going to replace them with stronger painted steel fenders, but I'm happy with how they are now. And cheap!
