Lightbulb Wrap or Paint

Not sure if here or general topics was appropriate so opt'd for here. I'd like to give the old 17' Polar Skiff a face lift. I have the new boat bug pretty bad but the skiff suits all my needs right now so I figure I'd just spruce her up a bit. I'm looking for opinions from everyone on whether to paint the hull or have it wrapped. Has anyone had a boat wrap done on here. If so what were the pros/cons. I think the main advantage would be you can change it out every cple years to get a new look. I'd also like to install a poling platform and casting deck. Any fabricators out there feel free to weigh in on a price for that? Look fwd to everyone's thoughts....

Wraps - good ones anyway - are about 2K. I don't know about changing it up every couple years at that price.

Also It'll be much easier to sell painted than wrapped if you ever decide to do so.

Not if it needed to be repainted in the first place...if you cover a dingy boat with a wrap take a guess at what you get when you pull it off (not saying the op's boat is dingy)

That looks like a lot of work as opposed to just selling a boat in its original condition. Maybe I'm just missing something here???
