Rain Shields protect interiors, keep boats smelling fresh

Beckson Marine Rain Shields

Nov 15, 2021

Whether it’s following a summer heat spell or a long winter’s storage, opening a closed-up boat can be an overwhelming olfactory experience. Port rain shields by Beckson Marine help protect boats from water ingress while allowing fresh air to freely circulate. This can mitigate interior mildew formation and the inevitable buildup of stagnant air.

Beckson offers both Internal Rain Shield and External Rain Shield/Hood models to fit a wide range of ports. Internal versions feature heat-repellent, smoked lenses and an integrated bug screen. Beckson makes single-louver styles to fit its 3″ x 10″ and 4″ x 10″ ports, while double-louvered models accommodate 4″ x 14″, 5″ x 12″ and 7″ x 14″ sizes. This versatile accessory can also be adapted to fit some non-Beckson ports. Users simply remove the existing bug screen and insert the Internal Rain Shield to add sun and spray protection.

To provide additional shade, as well as keep out water, the Beckson External Rain Shield/Hood meets the need. It’s screwed or bonded to the exterior trim ring of an opening port, creating a 3″ H hood that projects 2-1/2″ from the surface. Four models accommodate the same port sizes as the Internal Rain Shield, plus 8″ x 18″.

Beckson rain shields are an easy DIY retrofit. MSRP in USD starts at $100 for the Internal model and $36.10 for the External/Hood.
