Shrink Wrap recommendations & rates

We're planning to shrink wrap our boat this year. I talked to a guy doing this at our marina and although he is willing to do a sailboat he really doesn't know anything about sailboats, I know he is just shrink wrapping and doesn't need to know how to circumnavigate but a little knowledge about sailboats by the shrink wrapper doing OUR boat would make me feel better. He also quoted $12 per foot which is maybe a little high?

Also I have heard the arguments pro and con on shrink wrapping and see the logic in both BUT we looked at a lot of boats this Summer before buying ours and the difference between the ones that were shrink wrapped in the Winter besides the ones exposed to the elements was very noticeable.

Does anyone hear shrink wrap? If so who do you use and whats their rates?
