    speaking of spray on suntan lotion, what is the problem with it exactly? I have heard others say it will stain but no one seems to know for sure.

    I have not ever seen a specific test done on marine vinyl but have seen enough posts across the vast boating forums to decide better safe than sorry.
    sometimes the internet is full of lies but sometimes it's not. I'll take the chance that it's not with the cash I put down on my boat

    only have one summer on the boat...with three young children there was no way I would use anything else. Didn't see any issues. Now when the rents came on and my mom had put on that tanning lotion the morning of, well that stuff does stain like a bitch.

    I think it's more about the spray being blown around by the wind and ending up everywhere.

    It's the propellant. to make it spray, it needs propellant: The most common volatile carrier for sunscreen sprays is anhydrous ethyl alcohol. And the spray is 50 to 80% propellant. There's also solvents in sunscreen (up to 10%) that are necessary to keep the sunscreen liquid.

    So it's like pouring alcohol on your vinyl. Dries it out horribly and makes it crack.

    That's my understanding. I'm getting new upholstery and spray sunscreen will be banned.

    Excited to get out on my new Phase Five Matrix bought at the boat show this past weekend.

    Picked my son up a Phase Five Scamp to replace his Gromcast, so he is pumped for warmer water as well.

    Is it freaking lake season yet??

    Happened on our boat and cost me a skin back in 2006. Not sure who had it and what brand but it put a nice orange stain where the upper legs touched the vinyl. The fix I had is no sitting on the vinyl until the lotion soaked in or sit on a beach towel.
