Saw one of these masks for the first time when a friend was wearing it as they approached to raft up... first thing that came to mind was 'Terrorist!".....

I don't wear sunscreen for many of the reasons above, but tan easily without burning. I may well pay the price down the road, I suppose..... but I couldn't wear one of those contraptions.. seems it would be too hot most days.

Look, I'm not trying to downplay the impact of skin cancer, but , c'mon, the "unless-you-buy-our-overpriced-bandanna-and-dress-like-a-ninja-you-are-gonna-die" school of marketing just plain pisses me off.
No need for a poll to tell me that Basal Cell Carcinoma is sun exposure related. I live in Southern Nevada and I know zero sailors here, but I do know people who have had skin removed. As was mentioned in my OP, I heard about these on a show that details fishing. I want some cover and I want it to be clean and simple. Note: my boat does not have a Bimini.

Why not just wear your teeshirt over your head and look out one of the arm holes?

Yes, Sun mask is much better than sunscreen.
