I don't have a comptip... so where does that leave me? Cover the tramp and call it a day?
Well, a set of full hull covers are certainly a nice thing to have, they will keep your hulls looking the best if you store your boat out in the sun and/or on the beach. Most folks don't want to deal with the cost and hassle of using them, but they will keep your hulls looking practically new even after the boat is decades old. I had a set of full covers for my beach boat, but they pretty much fell apart after 20 years. This year I found a deck cover. It's a one piece cover that goes over the top of the decks and tramp. It seems like a good compromise and is much easier to install.
If you don't cover your hulls, at the minimum I would recommend a very generous coat of wax at the beginning of each season to help keep the gelcoat sealed.
For my comptip, I sprayed it with flat black grill paint three seasons ago and it still looks good.
