I am using my i14T so much now that it is inflated and ready to go on the deck of our sailboat all the time (we live aboard). I keep it under a UV resistant tarp, but still noticed some slight fading on the floor (the area under the seats is darker yellow than the rest of the floor). I have been using 303 on the whole kayak -- I applied it twice in 6 months. It made the "Hobie" labels on the sides of the kayak very sticky. Is this the right stuff to be using, or is there something better? I noticed that West Marine has some cleaner/protectant products for inflatables, and Hobie has one too. Anyone have any experience with these products?

The Hobie protectant is far batter. It is UV tech from McNett. According to their data on it... it penetrates rather than just coats the material. This rejuvenates the material and also means it stays put longer.
