I've had mine outside for the last couple days, covered, and I put towels over the sundeck and top of front seat and so far it's kept any color xfer from getting on the vinyl.
If your cover is in good shape, for someone like you that covers it all the time outside, I'd get an upholster shop to sew in a white cloth liner over the offending areas.

Looks good from here! As long as it's not getiing dryrotted where it will tear soon. They hold up well. Prev dork owner of my 06 left it out in the LV sun all summer every summer, said it was a PITA to take the tower down. (How many times would he really had to take it down putting avg 12hrs a year on it??)
1st cover lasted him 2-1/2 yrs before it tore. 2nd one had 1-1/2 yrs on it when I bought the boat and it's in good shape, but the rubber vents are cracked and the plastic buckles are pretty faded. FWIW, the sun in the SW will take out a blue plastic tarp, disintegrated, in less than 2 months in the summertime.

Notice you changed your first post! You didn't have to do that, but it makes me feel better!

haha i changed it after your reply. dont wanna step on anyones feet.

Im pretty sure the PO used the cover outside all the time. It does seem a bit frail, but hey if it keeps most of the elements out, and doesn't do the damage to my seats ill keep it for a while...

I give up.

Took the cover off to go ride this afternoon after the storm passed, and this is what I discovered. The towels i put down were just wet, but not discolored.
