Summer is already here and you cannot wait to dust off that boat so you can get it back into the water for a bit of adventure. While you are busy preparing for your first water trip, you might want to look into doing a few upgrades that can make warm-weather boating adventures more comfortable.

It is good to continuously upgrade your boating gear and the right accessories will make your trips more enjoyable so friends and family will want to venture out onto the deep waters more often.

There are quite a few boating accessories that you can get for enhanced boat comfort but we believe that the following items are ideal upgrades to consider for your warm-weather adventures.

A Bimini Top

Shading can be a pretty big issue when you are out on the deep waters with no trees or clouds in sight. You have a much higher chance of getting a bad sunburn on a boat because there is more humidity in the air which enhances the intensity of sun rays. Light also reflects from the water.

 

The shading on most boats is quite limited which is exactly why a bimini top is one of the first things you should consider for your boat. These tops are perfect for creating shade on open boats, runabouts, ski boats, and half cabins and can give you some needs shade while protecting your interior belongings from unexpected rainstorms.

A Boat T-Top

These tops are a good alternative to a Bimini top. They are just as flexible since you can install them on a huge variety of boats and they can be used over the cabin, steering, or over the passenger seats. Some T-tops are also designed with spray shields that can be very handy during the rainy season.

A Boat Cover

If you don’t have a good boat cover for your watercraft just yet, then it is a good time to get one to suit your boat design. Those UV rays are just as merciless on your boat and boating gear as it is on your skin. A good boat cover will protect your boat from damaging UV rays and will keep the interior nice and dry even if a sudden rainstorm hits. Boat covers are especially important if you are transporting your boat to a different lake or shoreline or if the boat is in storage because it keeps your accessories in one place and it will keep everything nice and clean.

Pedestals

If there is not enough seating on your boat for all your guests then it is time to get pedestals installed. Pedestal seats can be installed directly on your base and they don’t take up much room at all. There are different types of pedestals available on the market including ones that can absorb the shock and impact as your boat speeds along the shoreline.

The right boating accessories can make a huge difference in the comfort you enjoy while you are out on the waters. With proper warm weather gear, you can stay out on the deep waters for longer without the risk of getting burnt to a crisp.
