    For those of you that have installed boat wrap on a larger runabout, how many seams on a 30' boat is reasonable and how did you go about doing them so they blend in?

    I do them like a checkerboard, vertical and horizontal seams. Then when these idiots (the kind that wrap their personal boats) hit their trailers, run aground and bash into the dock, they can just replace 1 checker and save some money. That's why they come to me in the first place is to save money I think? I did just do one and the guy got real mad, hes calling everyone in town and asking them, then going online and asking people too and trying to push it back in my face. Oh well. Can't make everyone happy

    I do as many vertical seams as possible so that when the boat launches vertically there’s no drag.

    The good news is that the customers never come back to me, they usually just set themselves up as members on sign forums and do a post a day about the same subject until they get the answer they want.

    No wonder they don't come back, you're doing it wrong. My way is how the pros do it

    I hope you all are starting in the front and working your way back so the vertical seams are facing forward... That's how the Pro-fessionals get more work...

    Yeah but my way guarantees the customer always comes back. They’re coming back to complain but at least they’re coming back!
