Boat Shrink Wrap
Shrink wrapping your boat for winter may not be an impossible task for a DIYer. Depending on the size, two or more persons armed with a few tools and instructions can easily accomplish a boat shrink wrap in a few hours. The task will go smoothly if you supplement the appropriate amount of shrink wrap and heat gun with a few, well-chosen extras. Wholesale Marine carries everything that boating enthusiasts require for enjoyment on the water, and to maintain their craft as well. Before you tackle a boat shrink wrap project, call us for some essentials you might not have thought about.
Our boating specialists recommend that before you begin, tape all fuel vents. This will prevent off gases, created when heating the wrap, from causing a potentially dangerous situation. Shrinkwrap International has a Shrinkwrap Vent for just this purpose. You can never have too much shrink wrap tape. Shrinkwrap International offers tape in blue or white to coordinate with the wrap color you choose. If you think you’ll want to access your boat while it is “under wraps”, Wholesale Marine also stocks a 48” Zippered Shrink Wrap Door and a 36” size as well. Do not think that your family’s crafting heat gun will work for this task. Invest in the Big Red Shrink Wrap Heat Gun and have uniform heating for a professional-worthy boat shrink wrap.
