Laugh, just a little... good is all relative. PCV in Ireland (or here in Seattle) last a long time, even longer covered or with a UV protectant. PVC in Florida or Mallorca, not so much even with the best of care.

The worst case of sun damage I have ever seen on an inflatable was a 9 year old Honwave. It had spent its entire life in North Wales and the bits that were not covered were a deep shade of mahogany.

the covers also keep the cats and the seagull excrement off the tubes.

Seattle - mmm - I visit there quite a lot. I always feel at home there.. must be the weather...

Anyway - I'm an optimist - I keep it covered just in case we get a scorcher some day while I'm not at home.

Hey from Athens, Greece! Congratulation for your new boat! I hope that you will enjoy it a lot! I have the same one and I am really satisfied with it. Although it belongs in the Pro range it is a lot different than the smaller ones. It is very seaworthy and it can cope with much more heavy duty use than it's brothers. It has nothing to do with the Bombard 600 (you can see that just by looking at the hulls). The Pro 600 is designed for light commercial use and and the first thing you will notice as you ride it is the completely dry ride and a feeling of safety. The hull and the specification of the pro 600 are the same with SRMN 600. The only difference is the material of the tubes and that the SRMN is built for even more heavy duty usage. Congratulation again for your new boat!

Hi I have a pro 500 and the tubes are as good as new after nearly 7 years. I use a UV protector once a month through the summer months. I cover the tubes by deflating them and tucking in the cover between the hull.
It does not take long and looks new. Click image for larger version
