I'm curious, I've heard from a few folks (a dealer included) that utilizing 'chaps' would do more damage due to abrasion, than good to protect from UV damage.

I would disagree with that, especially if you're spending much time in the tropics... I can assure you, my 8 year old Avon is in far better condition than it would be, had I not been using chaps, especially when down south...

But, that's one reason I recommend Stamoid, it's a very slippery material, hard to picture it creating much in the way of chafe...

Re: Dinghy protective cover

I have built two covers now. I use Cordora (have been told it has all of the qualities of Sunbrella except it is cheaper and fades in the sun light).

Or dingy is probably nine years old now and pretty much looks like new.
