Re: Shrink Wrap and mast removal

We shrink wrap our boat every year and enjoy the trapped heat and have no problem with condensation. It all depends on how you do it. We have a 2x4 and PVC conduit frame with a custom built door and frame. We use clear shrink wrap and leave an air gap at the toe rail. I do not like the idea of waste but until someone comes up with something better. I do save a lot on heating though so hopefully that offsets the carbon credits lost with the disposable plastic.

It is very cozy sitting in the cabin during a nor'easter and hearing the snow hit the plastic.
