of course i clicked all the options and came up with the same picture

How long would it take to fade the etna red hypalon? Are we talking 10+ years, or a couple of years?

Pretty close I think the red console and jockey bases would be too patchy.

Red and dark blue seem to be the worst for fading, and I've seen examples of both that have been badly affected within a couple of years. I don't know how typical this is, but it's something that I would want to bear in mind.

We have full time crew and off days due to weather, would using something like 303 Aerospace Protectant extend that time to fade?

Red , local trader re-tubed a red 8m cause he couldn't sell it ( it didn't look pretty ) , went for a modern carbon style and sold it straight away...............

I always think that red tubes on a RIB look, well, how can I put it politely - a bit raw...?

Using 303 does help, but in your climate I think Red tubes are a mistake.

Carbon off white would look really cool
