A cover is the best way - failing that many people swear by Klear floor polish or similar - about to try it myself!!!

isnt there a branded UV protector available? -I'm sure that when I bought rib cleaner I also got a spray gun with a liquid for sun protection too...not much use to you in Scotland, but Ron Hale in Portsmouth stock it although I dont think it's this product thats listed on the store...

303 Aerospace UV inhibitor seems to work pretty well. If you can get it.

yes 303 is tops. I just ordered a case of it from a spa supplier in Newcastle area - found it via google - & the cost was 7.8 GBP per 16 oz spray.

Since then I have done my car, scooter & boat with fabulous effect, the water just beads off. Leaves your hands shiny too!

I can search out the link - they charge 5 GBP for postage so I got a case, on my second one already after only a month.

Thanks to everyone posting here, I got the 303 idea, lifejackets, servicing tips all from here. Just been out on the boat today for the first time & well pleased.

Cheers

Hi, this is where I bought the box, it was 7.95 GBP per 16 oz spray plus 5 GBP postage for the box of 12. Sorry, I used 1x 16oz spray to do my car, boat, scoot & pool stuff. It is very good & they delivered in 2 days or so.
