Been using Aerospace 303 Fabric regularly. Just a little fading after 3 years. Using anything better?

I use 303 Fabric on the deck. While somewhat frequent reapplication is necessary to keep water beading (I am on salt water mostly), it does limit fading.

A friend recently bought a 90s-era GII. The boat had been used for trips down the Hudson River. The blue deck looks terrific. The previous owner treated the deck with something; I wish I knew what it was. The fabric has a sheen and is stiffer than untreated. Whatever is on there has not come off, even after multiple days on salt water.
