Both water based and oil based poly offer good protection; the biggest difference is in appearance.
There's debate over which finish is harder, but some experts maintain that hardness isn't necessarily a good attribute of a floor finish. Most water-based polys contain only 30 to 35 percent solids, compared with the 45 to 50 percent solids in oil-based products. Use on doors, garage doors, exterior trim, lawn furniture, etc, Self leveling, No brush marks, Provides beautiful, transparent, and long lasting coating, Own sealer resists water, salt spray and chemicals, Includes maximum ultra-violet absorber, 1 pint, Satin finish.

Containing Translucent Iron Oxide Pigments, Sikkens SRD can be used on all unfinished exterior wood.
I don't know if your wood has faded evenly but mine has not due to uneven UV exposure.

I have been using the Sikkens oil based SRD, Semi-transparent (Cedar color from tint base) for a few years. Since these solids create the protective finish, you need to apply four coats, as opposed to two or three. The SRD offers 3 way protection for your exterior wood.  Protection from water damage, UV radiation, and Mold. This will ensure that reapplication of a new stain will achieve even color and proper penetration into the wood. My whole house finish was a semi gloss now the new product is flat and dull so I now have a multi finish house where the new has pealed and discolored the old is still on there from 1989 in places that were not gone over and it still has the semi gloss finish and is the same cedar color it was in 1989 when it was first done. They won't give wood the rich glow that oil-based polys impart; some even consider them cold looking.
Take inconsideration that results may differ due to different wood types, exposure to UV radiation, and natural weathering.

Even if you switch brands to another oil based stain, you will need to remove the current Sikkens. They'll slightly accent the character of your wood without giving it the amber tint of an oil-based poly. When I applied waterborne poly recently, I found that it went on so clear I had to use a bottle cap to mark each 8-in. Take inconsideration that wood and deck stain results may differ due to prepping procedures, different wood types, exposure to UV radiation, natural weathering, etc. We had many issues with the SRD dripping into the water below the dock creating an oily haze to the water.
