NICE! what kinda power is going into it? i've always wondered, whats the procedure one should follow to care for a wrap? can you wax it like paint or is it simply just wash it and you are done?

Not sure on the care normally we dont do this but we want to get the boat ready for Dessert Storm. Any advise would be great.

As for power its has a pair of 710's a bunch of the build pics are in the Ultra section on here.

Default Wrap Care

I have a little experience with a wrapped boat.
They look great as long as you don't rub anything with them
even a slight bump or rub will produce marks.....
Looks great just be very careful

Yeah,
I thought about wrapping my boat, BUT have heard the same drawbacks. I went with a wet sand and 4 coats of clear!

Yeah that wrap looks great congratulations, how durable are they at speed? Can a wrap handle 100mph in rough seas?

Yes. Not necessary, but I always seal the lead and bottom edges just to be sure.

So what happens when you take the wrap off after two years and there is the discoloration on hull where the wrap was covering it and where it was'nt. Kind of like when people remove the name on the transom of a boat.
