Basic Summer Clothing

Been trying to determine the best type of summer clothing for cruising.

A few criteria we wanted to consider:
1. Low water consumption when washing and drying
2. Durable hand wash
3. SPF protection
4. Stain and soil resistant
5. Longevity

Any suggestions or recommendations.

All your clothes will end up bleached out by the sun and bad laundromats unless your cruising grounds are just the US. Shorts and tees. I wear a bathing suit most of the time. Shorts and a t-shirt for going ashore. Cotton is best. As far as stain resistant and longevity, forget it. Just have a good supply and replace when necessary. You know the uniform of a cruiser, sun bleached clothes, a backpack and a bad haircut.

I like the long sleeve fishing shirts from Columbia or Cabalas. Columbia shorts work well as bathing suits and shorts. Both items rinse well and dry FAST.

I have a Dry Freak shirt and love it. AQUATA USA TOPS
I plan on getting one more but for day to day I like 100% cotton t shirts and quick dry shorts and pants from LL Bean and Old navy ( Old Navy is great for affordable shorts). I live in the midst of a humidity filled swamp and cotton is king.
