Default 4600 scb faded rail

I have this white rail on my 1999 4600 that isn't so white. I'm wondering if/how I could replace this with new stuff or if i should just cover it up with vinyl. I'm not sure how big of a job it is to replace or if I should even replace it since it's not broken, it's just not the best looking part of the boat.

It's not broken, I wouldn't touch it.

You can, of course, replace them. It should be one of the Taco rub rails. But before doing that, you might want to try to polish/compound them. If it doesn't work, try wet sanding.

Did you ever figure out how to replace the vinyl insert? I have been searching for 5 years. Only thing on the boat that is ugly from weather. Taco corp. has sent me multiple wrong size samples.

i went a cheap easy route. I bought some 3M 1080 car wrap film that matched the color (roughly) and cut it into 3/4" strips and just covered the ugly rubber. Its been on for months and no issues. Its just a cosmetic bandaid but it made the boat look much better.
