Triton Survey: Do you wear sunscreen?

Checking the tide: Do you wear sunscreen?
Prompted by an older captain who’s recently had some spots of skin cancer removed, we asked crew today if they wear sunscreen and, if they do, whether it interferes with their work onboard. While our answers were split between yes (50 percent), about half the time (33 percent) and no (17 percent), most crew noted that the greasy stuff on their arms and legs can inadvertently rub against stair rails and bulkheads, leaving them to wonder where all those smudge marks are coming from.
