I heard that sandblasting was a practice followed not too long ago but the more effective method these days is soda blasting - literally blasting the hull at high pressure with coarse baking soda. The cost seems to be around $40/ ft and the results are guaranteed. I spoke to a guy that told me that it would take a day for my 28' and that the hull would be stripped down to the gel coat by the time he was done.
