Re: Perkins 4.108M DIY Rebuild -- A Narrative
I've seen the term soda blasting come up from time to time on Sailnet. I am a little embarrassed to admit that I don't know what that is. Is baking soda used instead of silica as the abrasive?
Exactly that -- the soda's a much less aggressive media; works well on softer surfaces like aluminum and (for bottom paint stripping) gelcoat.
