    You may want to consider the 303 that has UV blockers.  I have used it for years on my seats with great results.

    Has anyone found themselves having to put a second coat of fabric guard on their playpen cover in the same season?  We have had a lot of rain this season and it looks like portions of the cover are staying wet for longer.

    Do you treat the cover while it is on the boat?  Just spray it on and let it dry?

    I'm thinking that I did not put enough on in the first place. When I initially put it on it beaded up and even held a pool of water.   I used a sprayer but looking back I probably should have made sure it was thoroughly soaked into the fabric in every section.

    I just ordered a gallon at $38.47. That IS a good price. :)


    The first time I ordered that stuff, I think I paid $63.00/gal.

    I am glad with the Simtex there is no need for the 303 any more. I love the new vinyl. Cleans really easy.
