ContinuousWave: Whaler Repairs/Mods
posted 04-02-2002 08:26 AM ET (US)
The bow chock on my '89 montauk has lost most of its chrome. What is the best way to restore the chock? I'm thinking it can be rechromed, there isn't much pitting on it.
Is rechroming expensive?
thanks for the help

Looking to rechrome all the hardware on my 13 foot 1980 whaler sport.....the estimate is $350 and will take 3 weeks.
I am looking to get another estimate but the folks who do this are few and far between even here in Va. Beach, Va. Hope that helps.

On my '81 Montauk, the chrome stand-offs for my rails were completely oxidized -- a bright green color. (Unlike later model whalers, my stand-offs were chromed bronze, not stainless steel).
Rather than rechrome the original hardware, it was cheaper to replace them with brand new stainless steel replacements (each fitting was about $20/each).
Moreover, if you buy stainless, you'll never have to worry corrosion ever again.
These guys are great to work with -- the original manufacturer of the rails and fittings is:

shop around a bit. I got my bowpiece done for $50.00. Took only a week.
