You can glue a hypalon over it..
As others have said a cover is best. I have not seen 303 save or make any PVC rib actually last longer than one without. Not saying it is not a good product, it is, but PVC is PVC and the life span is just shorter..
I had a Zodiac 310 that I bought in 1997. I 303'd the thing weekly and the fabric still only lasted me 4.5 years before the tubes got sticky and I'm only in Maine.
My hypalon AB looks like brand new and it's 7 years old..
