SHRINK WRAPPING PROCESS

Your boat is only protected by the harsh Winter weather if it is done by a trained professional. The team at Total Boat Vehicle & RV Protection Storage & Shrink Wrap prides itself on offering professional shrink wrapping services at an affordable rate. We have an extensive shrink wrapping process that ensures your boat opens up the way it was sealed. Our process includes:

  • The boat is dried with professional-grade dryers to avoid mold and mildew growth over the winter.
  • Next, we band and shrink wrap the visible surface area to make sure there are zero gaps in coverage.
  • We make sure all of the electronics on your boat are safeguarded.
  • Getting access into your boat without ruining the shrink wrap is important, so our team installs a sealed door for easy access.

This labor-intensive process is essential to make sure your boat is in the exact shape it was when you dropped it off. The last thing you want to do is fix your boat when the Spring season opens up.

Boat Shrink Wrap: Step 1

After drying the boat completely and covering the fuel vent you build the roofline. This is the foundation of the cover and needs to be solid. It is secured to the trailer frame in 5 locations and the outdrive as a sixth location.

Then the bottom line of the shrink-wrap must be built. This band needs to be strong and fairly tight. It will anchor the shrink wrap where you want it. Now is the time to double-check that all winterization is completed. Everything that should be off the boat is and fuel vent and anything else that needs are covered.
