A Bizarre Landscape
I went out looking for photographs today, and stopped at a yacht service down by the water. I saw a classic sailing yacht among plastic covered motorboats and thought that would make a shot. But it didn't. And then I turned around and saw this! These boats are shrink wrapped for the winter which protects them and keeps them clean. The material is polyethylene and after it is stretched on the yacht, heat is applied with 240,000 BTU heat guns, which causes the sheeting to shrink about 25 percent, forming a tight coating.
