  • ShadeFin™
    Add an extra layer of sun protection with ShadeFin by TACO Marine – a new product that easily attaches into rod holders, tops and arches for convenient, portable shade for almost any boat....
     

  • ShadeFin’s ocean-inspired design provides expanded shade coverage for multiple areas of the boat, including fore, aft and sides of tops or anywhere there is a rod holder. ShadeFin’s fabric provides an excellent UPF 50+ rating of sun protection while boating and fishing, or when relaxing at the dock and sand bar.

    To anticipate the needs of many boaters, ShadeFin pairs with either a Fixed or Adjustable Rod Holder Mount, which insert into any standard rod holder, a Hardtop Bracket Mount, the Grand Slam 170 Outrigger or 170-2 Center Rigger Mounts, or with a Fixed or Adjustable Clamp-On Mount for pipe or tube. ShadeFin also works with a Telescopic Rod Holder Accessory from extended coverage right from the gunnel. ShadeFin’s body houses the ribs and material, and is offered in black or white.

    A protective mesh storage sleeve comes standard with the 12-pound ShadeFin. To operate ShadeFin, remove the sleeve, mount to a desired location onboard and activate the underside release tabs. Structural ribs attached to weather-resistant sun-protecting fabric expand out from the body to lock the fin in place.
