Default Shrink wrap supply time

I know it is only the first of August and hopefully us Midwesterners have at least 2 and 1/2 more months of boating but I went ahead and ordered my shrink wrap roll. It is a 24 x 50, 7mil roll from Dr. Shrink.

I usually have enough left over to do the Jet Ski which is great. I already have enough tape and nylon strapping from last year ready to go for 2014.

Just a straw poll here but how many of you shrink wrap your boat?

Have it done by the marina or yourself?

Happy Boating

Roger

Hey #7. I plan to store my boat at Big Water over the winter. Does it get cold enough to justify winterizing?

Don't you store at Big Water as well? Have you had them do the winterizing?

Last year, time got away from me and I had them do it.

In years past, we usually do it ourselves.

Thinking about doing it myself... Can you guys recommend a heat gun that won't break the bank?!
