What do people use and how often?

This product does not mention UV just "protects" - would it be suitable?

I use 303 twice a year and my boats still look good after 20 years of use. I've tried Armourall, but while it was effective, it left the boats a little greasy feeling for a few days.

The product you flagged seems to be to buff out UV damage, not prevent it.

Another question - do these products work on FG, kevlar and royalex?

I'm a 303 and McNett fan.
They work on all but bring out the best shine on Royalex or poly boats.

Twice a year for our fleet.
Half way through the season and when I put them away for winter.

Every single boat (if it's worth it) that I sell gets a shine up coat with UV protectant.

I have always used flagship varnish for both cedar and Kevlar canoes. It takes about 3 or 4 coats, and a skilled hand to apply a smooth drip free coating, but I only have to recoat about every 5 years.
