When many boaters winterize their boat, they shrink wrap their vessel to get that strong layer of protection. The fabric cover can be easily installed so that the boat will be protected.
Shrink wrapping of boats can be done in different sizes and shapes
Shrink-wrapping your boat is like adding a layer of armor to your boat's protection. The winter can be harmful 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 interior and exterior. Any size boat to your largest yachts can be shrinking wrapped at the location.

Shrink wrapping is probably not a job you are going to tackle yourself. Many marine dealers offer this service, usually charging by the foot of boat length.
The shrink-wrap material is non-permeable, so it’s important that the boat is as dry as possible before it’s wrapped, and that vents are installed in the wrap so it can breathe during storage. Keel blocks have been known to sink into soft ground during winter thaws as well as the spring thaw. This can place added stress on the hull where the boat stands land. Before you shrink-wrap or otherwise prepare a boat for storage, however, it’s important to have the engine winterized. While somebody with the right tools and a good knowledge of marine engines can winterize a boat engine at home, it’s usually best left to professionals. In many cases, these same professionals also offer shrink-wrap services and may also offer indoor storage for boats. Deformation and even hull cracking can occur. Storing a boat at home over the winter is generally the cheapest option for boat owners, especially if they have a garage or barn big enough to accommodate their boat. If they don’t have a structure large enough at home, however, they’ll need to store the boat outside.
