- It only takes 15 minutes to burn depending on the UV index. Don’t know what the UV index is? Check out the Sunburn Map on-line, if the index is 3 or higher, slather up!
- Remember to protect your dog from the sun. There are a number of pet friendly sunscreens on the market, especially if your dog is losing hair. You can also purchase UV protective clothing that will protect them on a hike in the sun or, better yet, pour them a bowl of water and let them snooze in the shade (aka the front stateroom with the hatch open and a fan).
- Allergies? Remember that pollen concentration is highest in the morning so stay onboard with the windows closed and curl up with a good book. You can head out in the afternoon and be sniffle-free.
- Excessive sweating in the summer time can deplete your body of vitamins and minerals causing fatigue and irritability. Grumpy boaters aren’t fun. Pick up a bottle of multi-vitamins for the boat and stay active.
See you on the water!!
