Old one and new ones are PVC backed with "hypalon" type material. Above you can see how the PVC just disintegrated. Garaging the boat from now on.

You mentioned sanding. Do I need to be lightly sanding the tubes each season? I use 303 to keep a nice clean look (no chalkyness).

Any suggestions on how to prevent that PVC from weathering? A boat cover obviously.

Thanks,

ZacOps
A cover goes a long way.

Don't sand the boat for general cleaning... You can wash the boat with an inflatable boat specific soap and use a mr clean magic eraser. It'll take off the oxidization.

It's really not available. Not illegal to have I don't think but can't be sold.
Tap Plastics has it. Of course, you need access to a Tap Plastics store. If you have access to a surf shop, they often use MEKP (which is MEK with a bit of peroxide) as a catalyst for the resin. They may have straight MEK for cleanup as well.
