Clean & Protect Tubes?

What do the Florida/USA guys to use clean and protect hypalon tubes?

I will have a 30' commercial RIB in the water year round in the Caribbean - wondering what a good UV protectant/cleaner is and how often it will need to be applied?

Thanks!

303 aerospace protectant. Spray on and wipe with a cloth. Apply as often as you can. At least once a month in my opinion. They recommend every few weeks. Put it on vinyl seats, electronics, pfds, everything that will get sun baked. Works very well.
