What should i replace first. Im thinking of ordering the sundeck vinyls as they are clearly damaged. In the mean time while i wait for the vinyls I would take one of the damage interior seats (which has no sign of this brown stuff / damaged vinyl) which is ripped, and wrap it in the cover, and place the cover in the same environment as the boat. Then when i take the seat out ill be able to see if the damage occurs to this other seat also which will tell me the cover also needs to be changed. While if the damage does not occur, i can possibly continue to reuse my cover.

hmm, it seems to be pretty much the same. I left the boat uncovered today, hoping there will be some sun. I will try the malco cleaner again, but im pretty sure i will not cover the boat until something is replaced.

Is it the cover or trapped moisture that is causing this? I swear by the 303. Been using it for years now. And on a few diffrent boats as well. It's a bit pricy but a great investment.

The 1st time the boat was stored outside and it didnt rain or anything... I ordered a new cover and 4 new vinyl skins.

Will you be out on the chain this coming weekend?

So weird. I left mine at the storage place for 2 weeks. Came back and mine started to discolor too. Let it sit out in the sun for a few days straight and it came right out. Same factory cover from 02

Yea, i believe the vinyle starts to deteriorate and then discolors with the heat / abrasive surlast cover.

As the cover will be here before the vinyle im going to try with the sunbrella and see if the current vinyls discolor... just for a test.
