Can I get my Whaler shrink-wrapped? And would that not be the best way to leave it outside through winter.

Yes, I believe you can shrink-wrap. A word of caution though the wrap needs to have a vent in order to allow moisture to escape prventing mildue.

At the dealerships I have worked at we have shrink wraped many boats for the winter. Most come through with no problems, but mildew does happen.
Make sure the boat is bone dry before shrink wrapping.
Remove all upholstered items that you can. Any that are left in the boat should be clean and protected with 303 or a similar vinyl conditioner.
Open all hatches.
And like B Bear mentioned make sure the shrink wrap is vented.

Its august 11th, why are you depressing me with these thoughts now? I hope that I have at least a month and a half before I have to even think about hauling my boat and covering it.

How about a portable garage?
