Boat Shipping Cover?

I am currently in the process of getting a boat shipped from Texas to Chicago and I don't want to use the CS cover that it has for the 1200 mile journey. 

I came across this Transhield travel/shrinkable cover and wanted to get peoples opinions on it? It says for a VLX, but on the actual Tag, its for a VTX. Has anyone used these? Would it hold up for a 1200 mile trip? I don't want the shipper to have to deal with it flapping in the wind, but don't want the boat open if it doesn't have to be.

Any other suggestions on how to best ship a boat that will go from warm weather to cold weather (possible rain/snow) during the trip? Trying to work with the shipper on weather availability, but thought if this is decent, I would give it a shot.

I would have it shrink wrapped.

I would think you could find someone to shrinkwrap the whole baby for you. then the entire bottom is protected from any grime, salt, rocks, construction materials etc...

I would totally do that, but can't find a shrink wrap company down there and the dealer says they don't shrink wrap boats.

Thanks for the link. Didn't think would travel far but said its no problem. 13 bucks a foot seems reasonable. Thanks!
