    Ultra Violet Protection?

    I've been reading that some subs (fiberglass hulls) have been warping in direct sunlight and it got me thinking, don't UV rays breakdown most resins and plastics? So with that in mind, I was thinking what would be the best protection against sun damage? I'm thinking Attwood Premium Marine Polish after paint?

    A good waterproof paint will keep ultraviolet light away from the fiberglass and resin. Actually, I have it is the summertime heat that causes the hulls to move & warp. So don't let them get hot!
