5 Easy Steps to Unwrap a Boat
Much like wrapping and unwrapping a present, the unwrapping of a boat takes a lot less effort than it did to shrink wrap the boat for the offseason.
Here’s are 5 easy steps to remove shrink wrap from a boat.
2. Get Cutting
Cut around the shrink wrap film just above the perimeter band. When cutting shrink film, it’s best to use a shrink wrap knife, since the unprotected blade on a box cutter or retractable knife can easily damage the boat.
3. Start Rolling
Working from the bow, lift and roll the shrink wrap back toward the stern, continuing to roll up the film as you go. Have one person on each side to make this process much easier. (A third person in the middle under the shrink wrap is advisable for larger boats or boats with a high center console).
4. Get Slicing
Slice through the remaining perimeter band, belly bands and supporting bands. Cut the buckles from the bands so they may be reused next time, and also keep the support pole end caps for reuse.
Follow these 5 easy steps for unwrapping your boat to get you back out on the water sooner than later when the boating season returns.
