Protecting Poly Yak from UV when stored

What do people do, store theirs in the shade, inside?

Anybody use canvas covers like I see on Force 5's and other trailerable racing classes?

I also store mine under a blue tarp in the fishing season and in my shed in the winter on saw horses with all the ports open

poly tarps come in all colors, even clear. Google is your friend.

Ditto the 303. I use it on the yaks (poly & glass) and also the gaskets on my dry tops and suit.
