Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but always enough to do it right the second time.

Is it difficult to do Brad and do you really have to watch how close you come to the hull or is it fairly safe

My son-in-law does my boat he works at our marina. It is not that difficult, it takes practice. Leave the torch on to long or to close and you have a hole. The first year our marina did it what a hoot, white tap and patches every where. They even set a boat on fire when the shrink wrap caught fire on an edge dripped into the boat and the seat caught fire. After the first year they have not had any mishaps. We do reuse the shrink wrap, we get 3 years out of it before it goes off to the recycling, that takes planning and practice.

Thanks Ken. Jamestown has a heat gun for I think $595.00 I was just curious if it would save any money and would be easy to do. I could put the savings into a 47' Bayliner

it's not difficult to do at all, as Ken stated, the biggest thing is too close or too long and it will pop a hole, and yes boats can catch on fire upwards of 5 minutes after being wrapped. As for saving money, not sure what you get charged, but in the long run YES it will save you money. For your boat you would need probably 4 -2x4x8', 4 caps as in the video (you can get about 3 years out of them) and as for the shrink wrap you would need a 26' wide roll which i believe is 100' long. You would ge 2 wraps out of this. The biggest thing is to know where to put your posts so it will shed snow (if you end up storing outside). If you do go this route I can come up and show you how its done. It takes practice but can be done. Hell my first wrap was a 28' Bayliner, take a few times but you'll get the hang of it.
