  Need to replace the plastic dorades at the stern.  See attached.  Any suggestions for new ones?

Those vent scoops are made of fiberglass and can be repaired as needed.  I suspect they were made by Pearson as I have never seen anything like them from an aftermarket seller.  They are nice because they are low in profile and screwed down so they won't eject when they become entangled in a line.  I painted mine with awlgrip and they look very nice.

OK, thanks Dale.  I assumed they were a soft plastic of some sort that had gone hard over time.  Will pop them off this weekend & do the needed repairs.

Cheers!
