Default Shrink Wrap Company Needed

I plan on hauling my Renegade from Marco Island to NH at the end of April and need a shrink wrap company, I didn't know if anyone had good luck with a company in the area. I know it's probably not needed, but my sides are painted and didn't want to take any chances.

Call a boat manufacturer near you. Shrink wrap not done well will be worse than road debris

I agree, I just didn't know if anyone had good luck with one in SW Florida.

The shrink wrap if not done correctly will chaff the hull. Painted hulls will suffer paint damage. The tape used has to be for painted hulls as not to pull the paint when removing. Having moved boats in and out of the Boston boat shows in February and have done it with and without wrap, no wrap was far better. Just my opinion.

I should of had a full cover made, but the cost seemed high. I had it done at the factory to get it home and in NH to bring it down and they used the film to protect the paint and it trailered great and the boat was spotless when it got home. I'll ask around and see what I can find.

I shrink wrapped when my boat came from Miami to LOTO and glad I did. I have never seen a full cover for a CC being trailered, not sayin' they don't exist but with the height of a T-Top or console itself I wonder how well a cover works. My boat will be heading back to FLA this fall, I asked the ? here a month or so ago about travel covers for a CC to gain some possible insight and not a soul responded ................

This is how it came to FL in the fall, it worked great having the arch wrapped and letting the air pass through. If they made a cover, it would look like that.
