303 uv aerospace protectant

I've used 303 in the past on my PVC rafts and found that it makes them incredibly slick. Anybody know how to not have your boat be so slick after using 303?

Use the 303 after cleaning the boat, after a trip.
The slickness will dissipate over a short time and not be a problem after a week stored inflated indoors.

Some people spray the bottom and allow to dry just prior to launch for shallow rocky runs.

Search for another recent thread on 303 for more comments.

This has been my only solution as well, even on the first trip of the year after being stored all winter that 303 is slick as all get out. After one trip it gets rubbed off, paddle rafting is interesting when the seats are slippery though...
