What tools will I need?

Shrink wrapping is very simple, once you understand the process (again, be sure to watch the video).

You will need a Cord Strap Tension Tool, Shrink Wrap Film Knife, Long Cuff Safety Gloves, Safety Glasses, a Heat Tool/Shrink Wrap Gun, 20lb. shrink wrap propane tank, shrink wrap to fit the project, strapping, buckles, shrink wrap vents, and tapes including shrink wrap tape and possibly anti-chafe tape and hull preservation tape.

Other equipment you may need include ladders to fit the job, a hand saw, 2 x 4 lumber for supports (if needed), a jack knife, a T-50 Stapler, and a 25’ tape measure.
