Ya, but you know a woman is HOT when she looks good in a Floater suit!
Pond, if you managed to survive in a fibreglass boat, just keep doing it... only twice as fast in waves that are twice as big. Be prepared to get wet on occasion... and watch out for nails and the like sticking out of docks!
BTW, what colour are your tubes? Dark ones will heat up in intense heat which will speed up deterioration. UV rays are hard on hypalon and you would be well advised to use an overall cover when you're not using the boat. Along the same lines, make certain you have overpressure valves in all chambers, as the heat from the sun will cause expansion, and potential damage to the tubes, especially if it's out of the water.
I store my boat on a trailer and I have always tarped it with a silver-colored tarp which reflects sun well.
