Getting Your Boat Ready for 2018 Season

If you are living in the Mid-Atlantic, New England or lake areas of the U.S. you are probably thinking about warm weather to take your boat out on the water. Boaters and recreational fishermen eagerly await summer every year. The weather’s warm, the sun is bright and the fish are biting. There’s no better time to head down to the lake, river or the open sea and enjoy the balmy weather.

boatOne of the most important instruments on your boat is your navigation GPS or fishfinder. They guide you where you want to go and show you how to get there and also, where the fish are. You no longer need a compass or paper maps to tell you where you are going. However, these displays are no match for the brightness of the sun. They can easily wash out and if not taken care of, can be ruined by water on the surface or burns on the screen. Turning up the device’s backlight only does so much, and can suck the life out of any battery-powered device. Regular sunglasses may reduce glare, but they’ll also cut down on the light you receive from your screen, further impairing visibility. And polarized sunglasses turn the screen dark and unreadable.

NuShield DayVue Anti-Reflective Screen Protector

Luckily, there’s an easy solution. NuShield’s DayVue screen protector is a sturdy, yet lightweight film that fits over your device’s screen. It allows you to read the display while eliminating glare and it works even better if you wear polarized sunglasses. The NuShield films are cut to fit individual devices precisely and the film is easy to install.

NuShield already has sizes that fit hundreds of devices from Garmin, Furuno, Humminbird, Lowrance, Magellan, Raymarine and Simrad just to name a few. And they are ready for sale. Shipping is usually within 48 hours. If you don’t see your model in NuShield’s extensive database, just fill out the contact form on their site and they will add your device to the list. They’ll cut a film to fit your device, whether that’s your GPS, your fishfinder or the LCD TVs in the state rooms, so you can view your TV inside without glare.

The devices on your boat are extremely useful — but you can’t use them when you have trouble reading the screen. With a DayVue GPS screen protector, you’ll protect your devices, cut down on glare, and be able to boat and fish in comfort. Before you launch your boat for the summer, install a DayVue screen protector and travel safer on the water.
