Putting shrink wrap on your boat is one of the best and safest ways to store your boat outside for the winter, especially here in Southeast Alaska.
Shrink wrap is the best means of protecting your boat from the snow and ice during those
long, cold and windy winter months. It’ll keep your boat warm when the sun shines and dry
on even the worst of days.
Shrink wrap comes in three colors – white, blue and clear. Blue is the most popular in
Alaska and is what we provide to our customers. It’s acceptable looking in
neighborhoods and because it’s translucent, it provides comfortable light when you’re in
the boat. Blue is most popular up North. It’ll heat up better than white when the sun
shines which in turn sheds the snow better. The trouble with blue is that the boat’s
interior takes on the color blue when you’re in the boat. Clear is most popular with boat
sales and live-aboards. It allows customers to view the boat and gives live-aboards some
much needed heat and light.
