A fun-and-sun day on an inflatable boat can lead to a toss-and-turn night with severe sunburn. Taylor Made Products, Gloversville, N.Y., supplier of marine aftermarket products, can intercept some of those damaging rays with new shade tops that accommodate inflatable boat widths up to 5 feet 7 inches and lengths up to 10 feet 8 inches.

The kit comes with shade top, frame, marine-grade hardware, storage bag and instructions. Once permanent hardware is mounted to the boat’s bow and stern, the top sets up and breaks down quickly and allows sufficient headroom for boat operation. “Inflatable boat owners now have … protection from the sun while out on the water, which until now consisted of hats and sunscreen,” says Dave Karpinski, vice president of Marketing for Taylor Made.
