Default Shrink-wrap / Winterizing Costs ?

What are the average pricing folks are paying for Shrink-wraping ?
Winterizing I/O engines

I hear prices are up for shrink-wrap material, I suspect b/c of supply and demand.

Thanks !

I have been told by my "wrapper" that cost will be $18/ft this year. This is for mobile wrap at my yard. Cannot remember what it was last year.

Default Up 50% for me

I had been paying a very low $10 per ft. for the last 5 years. Jumped to $15 this year. I decided to cover myself with a Transhield cover. Seems to have gone on easy enough but doesn't have the height/slope I would like for snow. Its reusable so I'll recover my cost in one year and hopefully it lasts 2 or more years. We'll see how it goes this year.

Our shrink wrap cost increased from $800 to $1100 this year. We decided to still get it done, but a friend with the same size boat decided to buy a shrink wrap gun and all the supplies to do it himself on his boat. I helped out and it was not all that challenging. We'll be doing my boat too next year, for a maximum of $300 in materials. The gun and the extension wand were not cheap, but they can be used for years on multiple boats.

That is the way to go! Just did the Tiara last weekend 24'X50' roll was $230. The Wellcraft only needs 17' wide wrap, that is much cheaper. I am not cheap, but am frugal!

Just used Diamond Shine in Gilford today for the first time . They responded to me quickly and got me in today before the storm hits this weekend. Shrink wrapped my jet ski for $95 (better than the $175 Iwas quoted by someone else). Thanks Robin and the crew at Diamond Shine
