The old fake team trim whatever pieces were the first thing to go when I bought my Grady.
Home Depot sells a PVC plastic material that works good with wood tools roughly the same size and shape as the stock trim.
Go to Home Depot and buy four or five pieces of the stuff they come in 8 foot sections.
go home unscrew one piece Of trim a time and match it up to the new material cut and re-screw done.
The material doesn’t work doesn’t bend but does have a tendency to scratch kind of easily but all in all a very very cost-effective alternative to that very expensive star board stuff.
It’s a fun Sunday project could have it done in an afternoon ( if your good with tools)

Mine came out great and I always get compliments about it from other Grady owners my Marina

Thanks for the tip! This is going to be 1 of the first things I look to do/use come spring.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I've followed Art's advice on painting the duratrim on my 98 Gulfstream and the result is 1000 times better! A nice winter project too for us northerners. Can't wait to finish it off and install this spring. image.jpg image.jpg
