Adjustable rollers adapted for the shrink wrapping of boats


boat shrink wrapping

We work with boat builders and owners who get fed up with having to clean a dirty boat at the end of every layup period. Tufcoat shrink wrap can be applied to objects or structures of any size as the sheets can be welded together, this means there are no holes or openings which can occur with tarpaulins or scaffold covering, the result is 100% encapsulation and full protection. If you have a requirement that we cannot meet from our stocked product then we may be able to manufacture a custom product to your specification. 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.

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. Wherever you end up keeping your boat, if you do not plan to use it for a month or more, you need to winterize it. An increasing number of boats can be stored ashore on dry storage racks. These racks are designed for typical boat hulls, but can’t always be adjusted to support unusual or atypical designs. If you have doubts about the support provided by a rack, consult a marine surveyor or consider an alternative winter location such as a trailer, which has adjustable rollers that can be adapted to different boats.
