The plastic must then be sealed and heat welded together to create a snug fit around the top and sides of the boat. The winter can be injurious to the outside of your boat if not protected. Shrink wrapping your boat adds an extra layer of protection to keep moisture, pests, and damaging winds away from your boat’s inner and outer.
Shrink wrap can be produced in an extensive variety of sizes and thicknesses depending on the needed application, amount of durability and duration of exposure to different elements. Fresh water expands in volume by about nine percent when it freezes and can push outwards with a force of tens of thousands of pounds per square inch. The structure is complete, a single piece of plastic is cut and draped over the boat and secured to the belly line.
