Suntan lotion on seats

Anyone out there know if there is a suntan lotion made that is safe for the upholstery on Mastercraft boats, mine is an '04. I personally don't use any but the wife and our newborn will use lotion on occasion. I'm just trying to prevent any stains that may occur from using suntan lotion. Last summer my wife would simply place a towel on the driver's seat when driving but when guests arrive I don't want to say "NO suntan lotion" but if I have to, I will.

mine's an older boat with worn seats, so suntan lotion is not an issue........

but, keep in mind....YOU are the Captain, and YOU make the payments, and YOU will benefit or not benefit from the resale when it comes time to sell.

looks like a good SPF 30 might help mine, but I don't know...lol

My wife, Toddler daughter & myself use Bull Frog religiously (no - not just on Christmas & Easter) and haven't had any problems! In fact, it may just add a layer of protection to your seat since the SunBlock is blocking the same rays that is damaging to your seats.

BTW - after your first bout with skin cancer, you'll change your mind also. The scary thing about skin cancer is that it doesn't only affect your skin. Once it gets into your limph nodes, your done. I have a buddy who has a 40% chance of getting cancer somewhere else in his body (anywhere else) within the next 5 years because he had skin cancer.

We use No-Ad 45 and a bimini top. No stains on the seats yet. I won't go on a boat without sunblock. I'll usually reapply every 30 minutes.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

I'm somewhat fair-skinned and my wife's a redhead. Our kid is doomed to a greasy boating existence.

I agree - that's why we use BullFrog. We re-apply after towel-drying only. Since we rarely towel dry, we only need to re-apply 1-2 times per day. We also wear Rash Guards, so we're only putting sunscreen on arms, legs, neck & head. Old Navy even makes rash guards and board shorts for infants!

There's certainly no beating bull frog for protection. However, I can't stand the smell of it though and if you've ever gotten it in your eyes, that's not pleasant either.

I have a rash guard and wear it often.

I'd buy some board shorts at old navy, but BriEOD makes fun of them.

Yes he would! I have never heard of rash guard , probably because I have never needed it, guess?
