Boat Shed Finished

I am really happy with the way this thing turned out. Pete mailed the shrink wrap gun early last week and it arrived on Friday. Just in time as it turns out. I spent Saturday morning blasting the shed and finished up just as snowflakes from the first winter storm this year arrived.

I'm not sure why but I found that shrinking this shed was much easier than any boat I had done. I think it has something to do with all the tucks and folds in a boat shrinked in the standard fashion. I only had a few tiny mishaps with burning holes in the shrinkwrap and these were down on the ground next to a pile of leaves that kept catching fire and melting the film.

The final product is literally drum tight and shed the 4 inches of heavy wet snow like a champ, not a single leak. Hope it holds up for a long time to come.

Now I can focus my attention on the boat without worrying about the weather as much. It will still be a cold winter, but with the salamander heater I was able to warm the shed up from 30 degrees to 50 degrees in short order. I have not been completely neglecting the work to be done either, I have been picking away at removing all the hardware and toerails from the deck while putting the shed together. I'll have some pictures and a post later this week.
