Sand Washing-What is it?
What is sand washing?
I read on yachtsurvey.com that sand blasting is not recommended. They Quote; "Under no circumstances should you ever sand blast or sand sweep a bottom. Sandblasting shatters the plastic and exposes the fibers far more than they already are. In addition, it craters the gel coat with millions of craters that only worsens the problem when it is sand swept."
My yard suggested ''sand washing'' to remove the paint (and maybe my 15 year old barrier coat too????) Has anyone tried it?
I have some minor blistering(I have read Jeff H posts on the subject)and I am seeking the best approach. But what is sand washing?
