Your welcome. Some of us aren't lucky enough to have a garage for our massive beasts.

Is winter over yet??

People think that these guys want to much money for shrink wrap....

Let me tell you , IT'S WORTH EVERY PENNY !!

Tarps SUCK , & boat covers don't work well after a year or 2 .

I bought all the stuff to do it a few years ago and was doing shrink wrapping ......

THAT JOB SUCKS !! It is a LOT of work ! I will not do it anymore for ANYONE ! I hate doing it ! My hat is off to you guys that do it . You have more patients then I do ! And it is worth every penny you ask for it ! Next to a garage , shrink wrap is the only thing going to keep your boat nice !

A note to anyone thinking of buying the stuff and doing it themself, DON'T ! Let someone else do it ,it's worth it ! Joe

It's really fun when you go past the fuel tank vent with the giant flame from the heat torch !

If I lived on the East Coast, I would definately shrink wrap my boat unless I had indoor storage. It is definately worth it.

Thanks, boot.

We did our little boat (14') last weekend and I didn't think it was all that bad. The prep work is the hardest part. If the weather cooperates this weekend, we will be shrink wrapping our 47' Fountain and a friend's 288 Sunsation (and winterizing).

Going rate is anywhere from $11-18 per foot. We will do it for $8 /foot.

What are friends for??

Be doin mine for years. Put up a wooden frame and a zippered door in the back and you can work on it over the winter too. Two years ago I redid my whole dash and some upholstery over the winter. Sunny day in the 30's and you can work in just a flannel shirt and jeans in comfort.

Hey B & P, is your shop in Rockville, big enough to get most of Monsoon into for some 'upgrades', and get us out of the weather?
