Winterizing my own boat this year. Anyone know where I can buy a roll of shrink wrap. I checked some of the online sites but the shipping is outragous. Anyone know some where local?

West Marine will deliver and ship free to one of their stores for local pick up. Maybe that works for you.

Looking for 26' to 28' wide by 150' long ( flexible on length).

I'll check WM. Usually they are higher price on things but it may work out.

Shrink wrap

If you go with a size to any of the local marinas they will probably sell you a piece that you need rather then an entire roll

I think it's a MAKO

Word of advice. Boat US will tell you, one of the big reasons for fire claims on a boat, is improper use of a torch (usually one of the "ground burners"!) on shrinkwrap. In their words, it is usually a job best left to pros.
That being said if you do have said torch (2" round head with trigger burst feed) DO NOT USE TRIGGER AT ALL! (I may or may not be speaking from experienceFingerToungue). Just the valve feed will give you all the heat you need to do job! If you have proper gun, don't get too close and you will be fine. I have used both.
