Importance of sun safety on a boat and how recreational boaters can stay focused on being sun aware and sun safe on the water

With fishing, cruising, tubing, anchoring, lounging, entertaining… the time you spend on your boat adds up quickly. And it only takes 20 minutes of sun exposure to get sunburn if not properly protected.

The growing demand for SureShade’s retractable sunshades is a testament to the changing views of sun safety in boating as the industry and boaters recognize how improved sun protection is critical to their safety and enjoyment on the water. As strong supporters of sun safety on boats, we are committed to raising awareness for this important aspect of boat safety.

Check out the below Infographic on why sun safety is an important part of recreational boating and how to be sun safe in the water while boating.
