Say, why not just use this protective adhesive film, and forget the shrink wrap altogether, similar to what the car manufacturers do?

They are not thick enough or wide enough for boats and cannot cover large open areas like the cockpit. The cars now have bags over it or are shipped in sealed canvas sided haulers.

Otis just remember that the next time I tow your boat the trailer could be left behind and I can just tow the boat on its keel. It saves weight and fuel. Besides its just a Gladiator and no one really cares. Are you coming to desert storm or are you just an east coast drunk? You wana play with the big dogs you need to come to a real party

So then is the film is just used around edges such as between the hull and deck, rather than the entire gelcoat surface?

For the most part yes. Also on powder coated or highly polished hardware like cleats and things. Windscreens as well.large flat areas will be OK without it. It is used on high stress areas such as curves and corners that make tight contact with the shrink wrap.
