Nothing beats a day out on the water in your boat, whether you’re fishing, tubing or skiing, or just out enjoying a pleasure cruise. Though as great as the water may be, the sun beating down on top of you can be absolutely brutal. You can always jump in the water to cool off, but once you get waterlogged, the best play to be is up on the boat under a shade or enclosure. Made to fit any variety and shape of boat from a sailboat to a speedboat to a pontoon, these different shapes offer plenty of shade and a little reprieve from the sun when you’re just letting the waves drift you. There are different options that cover both the bow and the stern, or just offer a little more shade for the captain’s chair. They pop up and install easily, making it a breeze to take up and also just as easy to fold back down when you’re ready to fire up the engine and head back to port. Not only do these shades provide a safe haven for boaters, they also help prevent sun damage to a boat’s deck—especially covers that fit over a boat’s slip at dock.
