That's probably your best bet, especially if it's going to be trailered.

You shrink wrap a boat that will be trailered different than one that's going to sit in a driveway all winter with snow on top. Basically, you keep as low a profile as possible and it needs to be air tight. Lots of taping around the hull so the wind can't get underneath. If it's done wrong there won't be any shrink wrap left on the boat when it gets to Florida.

We wrapped this Gov't tool box and sent it to Washimgton , DC . Arrived spotless. Shrink Wrapping is the way to go. Also get a roll of the tape to secure cockpit covers , etc.

They make doors that you can install into the shrink wrap for access.

Snow ???? A big pain in the A$$. I'll package some up for you and send it down next time it snows
