Tube protection

Could any body recomend some form of polish, coating to protect the tubes from sun light?...and seagull shit.
While i am on, does any one use wave pump bilge pumps? i have looked on the web and they seem quite good. Could they work on a Rib?.

Nothing like a cover to keep the RIB in tip top condition when not in use

Looks Slow but is Fast

We have used the stuff in Martin's link before but this year have moved to Marine A-glaze (due to a good deal at the boatshow).

Both are good, would seem that the A-glaze stuff is a little more practical because it is spray on.
