I use 303 twice a year, spring and fall, at a minumum. More if I use it a lot, it it's spent considerable time in the sun for some reason, etc. I buy it online from NRS in the gallon size, refilling a smaller spray bottle for easy application. Wait, somebbody already said that... LOL

The main reason to use 303 is not really to keep your boat supple, but to keep it from sun damage. The biggest factor for 303 is its sunscreen properties. The sun will dry your boat out badly if not protected.

So, here's a question: do you always clean the boat with inflatable boat cleaner before you 303 it, or is it OK just to rinse with water then 303? I've always used boat cleaner first but wondered if it was necessary.

I use a non-detergent cleaner for my boat. Something like Woolite. I think the detergent based cleaners will assist in drying your boat out. They contain some pretty harsh degreasers.

Thanks so much for the responses. I figure the boat will get used 6 times per year or so being that I live in Iowa and it takes at least a 3 day weekend to get anywhere with a river. Right now Wisconsin is only place we have went

Going to go to Colorado next May or so. ANybody know of good rafting rivers in the midwest or in south that are halfway close to Iowa? I have searched and Wisc was only thing that came up with some whitewater. I dont want to fight a lot of rocks

More or less within 8 hour drive would be nice. Southern missouri? Tennessee/Kentucky or Ohio?

This has always looked cool:

Niobrara National Scenic River (U.S. National Park Service)

In Nebraska.
