My liveaboard neighbour is a triathlete. She has some sort of roller frame which she can mount her bike on for training in the cockpit (admittedly, they're on a big stinkboat )

Re: Stand Up Paddle Boards on a Catamaran

I use that in my basement during the winter. I wouldn't want to put an expensive road bike on my boat. I think the salt air would break it down quickly.

UV will eat it up if you don't cover the board. You can forestall the effects of UV with something like 303 spray every few weeks.
I'm not familiar with 303 spray, and you bring up another question I was pondering. We've got two Naish boards, which are a bright yellow color except for the graphics and a textured rubber foot bed on the top. While patching some dings in the fiberglass, I discovered that the yellow they use is identical to the yellow spray paint I can buy at the local hardware store.
I'm wondering if a coat of spray paint on the boards would suffice for UV protection.
