We did what you are suggesting a few days ago to our Tartan 27'. We raised the boom up about a foot higher then usual and used our spinnaker pole as the beam over the foredeck. I unclipped the pelican hooks on the life lines so they were limp and would not interfere with the 2 large tarps we draped over the spars and tied off below.
When we arrived at our 'marina' there were 2 guys on a 30 footer who were setting up a frame made from PVC plastic. By the time we were getting into our cars to leave for the winter those 2 guys were still working on their frame.
Shrink wrapping is a waste of money and resources, IMHO.
