Blisters

Looking at purchasing a 1986 Catalina 27 Tallrig. The survey went well, the big find was multiple small gelcoat blisters on the transom and both sides of the hull. The seller has agreed to reduce the purchase price by the cost of repairs. Now the big question, any comments on the type of repairs that should be done. The yard recommeds sandblasting and epoxy. I''ve heard that sandblasting can pit the matting and make matters worse.
Thanks for your time,
steve

Steve,
A competent yard will use a soft medium to do the blasting. This will remove only the affected glass down to the matt. It is a very good way to approach this job. The alternative would be power planing.
As in my other reply, it is very important to find the source of the moisture if these are osmotic blisters.
Good luck JEF
