What's Best: Shrink Wrap vs Tarp vs Boat Cover
Our Opinion? Protect What You Love...
Both tarps and shrink wrap are commonly used by boaters because some people believe they provide a “cheap” option to protect their boats compared to a high quality cover. However, in our opinion (which we believe is based on the facts), buying a boat that costs many thousands of dollars and then trying to save a few dollars on something that doesn’t provide adequate protection or easy installation for your boat under all circumstances doesn’t make a lot of sense (or cents).
