Shrink-wrapping your boat!

Let’s say you own a boat that is docked in the harbor at South Portland, Maine.

Great fun in the summer, but what to do with your boat in winter? Shrink-wrap it!

First step is getting it out of the water. Next you clean it and get it ready to be sealed up.

This can involve scraping the hull.

Shrink-wrap is done with a tough plastic and hot air drier like a huge hair drier.

The final effect is a tight, snow and rain resistant cover that is cheaper than a tarp and 

is recyclable. All of this creates an erie effect like a parking lot full of boat “body bags.”

Who knew? Ah, what you learn by wandering around near the sea with a camera.
