24 Oct Applying A Boat Wrap

Boat Wraps are the most practical way to improve the appearance of your boat. For one, a boat wrap costs a fraction of the price of a custom paint job. Secondly, a boat wrap will protect the actual exterior of your boat from outside elements. You really can’t go wrong with a boat wrap… unless it’s not applied properly. Applying a boat wrap is a challenging task and must be done properly. In this article we will explain the process and how to make sure yours is applied correctly.

Boats Are Unique

Boat wraps are different from auto wraps (and most other wraps) because boats have very unique shapes. There are only so many car models, so most of them will have pre-designed templates for the shape and cut-out of the wrap. This isn’t the case with boats. The amount of different shapes, models and styles of boats you will run across is mind-blowing. This means that almost all boat wraps have to be totally custom designed. Your wrap needs to follow the contours of your boat to a tee in order to adhere properly.

Hire An Expert

One of the benefits of a boat wrap is that they are a fairly sustainable investment compared to the cost. This is only the case as long as the wrap is applied properly. Boat wraps are generally applied starting at the back of the boat. The reason for this is so that the panels of the wrap don’t overlap. When seams overlap, you have a higher chance of the wrap being pulled away from the boat. There are so many intricacies like this that take a great deal of practice to perfect. This is why you should hire an expert to apply your wrap. Not only can they perform the application, but they can create the template and cut to the exact specifications needed. This is really the only way to guarantee that the job will be done properly.

Applying a boat wrap is painstaking and exacting work that should be done by a qualified professional. Protect your investment and your boat by making sure the job is done right.
