Looking much like any other steel boat in progress, the novel SHRINK-WRAP techniques make construction quicker and more accurate. These amateur-proven methods assure super-smooth, fair surfaces virtually free of distortion. Fairing and filling compounds are virtually unnecessary. The final boat is so fair it might be confused with one molded in fiberglass.
