I''ve been checking around with several yards about doing a bottom coat job on my boat.This will only be the third she has had new bottom coat since I''ve had her.When I pulled her out recently, I discovered about half a dozen quarter size blisters.One yard that quoted doing the work mentioned that they would sand-blast the bottom,repair the blister areas,apply two barrier coats,and then two bottom coats.All this sounds good to me with the exception of the sand-blasting.The other yards mentioned sanding.Is sand blasting an acceptable means for removing the old bottom coat?
